16 Volunteer Mediators from the Mediation Center of the Pacific Will Learn How to Mediate Online via Skype – March 2, 2013 – Honolulu, Hawaii

The Mediation Center of the Pacific is holding the first session of Skype Video Mediation Training on Saturday, March 2, 2013 (9:00 am – 2:00 pm) in Honolulu, Hawaii see flyer for details.

The know-how to mediate online via Skype will be provided by mediator Giuseppe Leone, founder of Virtual Mediation Lab, an online mediation project sponsored by the Association for Conflict Resolution – Hawaii Chapter to help mediators around the world:

  • Practice and improve their mediation skills
  • Learn how to mediate online

by participating – with other mediators – in online simulations via Skype

MCP’s objective is to start using this new capability:

  • To better serve clients in Divorce or Paternity cases where one party is not on Oahu or in Hawaii
  • To expand the availability and accessibility of mediation to more cases involving the elderly who may be home-bound, have mobility issues, or who have concerned family members who are not on Oahu or in Hawaii

  • Take turns and perform the tasks indicated above
