Hawaii Community Mediation Center of the Pacific Will Offer Online Mediation Services via Skype

To honor the work of the late Hawaii workplace mediator Michael “Mike” Nauyokas, the Mediation Center of the Pacific will officially open the Michael Nauyokas Innovation and Excellence in Mediation Room Wednesday, January 16, 2013 (5:30 – 7:00 p.m.) – 245 N. Kukui Street Suite 206 – Honolulu, Hawaii. To RSVP call (808) 521-6767 or send an email to mcp@mediatehawaii.org by Friday, January 11.

The renovated room provides Skype and video conferencing capabilities, making mediation services more accessible for cases in which at least one party is off island, particularly in the areas of divorce, foreclosure and elder matters.

A special demonstration of a Skype mediation will be provided by mediator Giuseppe Leone who generously donated two days of training to the Mediation Center of the Pacific to share his expertise and best practices in working with Skype and mediation.

Giuseppe has conducted more than 100 Skype mediation demonstrations involving mediators from 23 countries through a special “Virtual Mediation Lab” online mediation project sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution – Hawaii Chapter.

PLEASE NOTE – We no longer use Skype for our Virtual Mediation Lab online mediation simulations. To learn why, sign up for our 1-hour Introduction to Online Mediation with PC Mac and Mobile Devices. One of the topics we cover during that training is “How to Choose a Video Conferencing Software for Online Mediation”.
