Michael Lang on Developing Artistry in Mediation

Michael D. Lang has been mediating family, commercial, public policy and organizational disputes since 1978. He is the founding director of the Master of Arts Program in Conflict Resolution, a former President and Board member of the Academy of Family Mediators, and Editor-in-Chief of Mediation Quarterly.

First published in 1998, his article Becoming Reflective Practitioners explains the difference between skilled “mechanics” and skilled mediators, and how to learn artistry in mediation.

In 2000, Michael Lang and Alison Taylor wrote The Making of a Mediator: Developing Artistry in Practice, a book that offers mediators a conceptual framework and practical guidance for developing artistry in mediation.
