NYLS ADR Program Series: Getting to Maybe – The Intersection of ADR and Adult Learning

September 20, 2022
Diane Rosen, Professor Theo Cheng
New York Law School

Mediators facilitate dialogue and communication among parties in conflict to move them toward a resolution of their own making. But communication is a two-way street, and what we intend to communicate is not always what is received and processed by the listener. In order to interpret, integrate, and understand information, adults engage in a process of sense-making.

Professor Theo Cheng joined Herrick counsel Diane Rosen in an interactive program to explore how mediation participants ingest, digest, and make meaning of information by exploring how adults learn and process communications to help create opportunity and potential for parties to consider possibilities and alternatives for resolving their differences.
