DR. BERNIE MAYER:
Dr. Mayer is an internationally recognized leader in the field of conflict resolution and the author of several well-known ADR books – invaluable tools used by mediation professionals worldwide.

Dr. Mayer is also internationally recognized as a trainer and an innovative leader in applying mediation and conflict resolution to human service arenas. He has taught courses or seminars for Harvard University, the University of Colorado, the University of Denver, the University of Missouri, Windsor University, Colorado State University, the University of Warsaw (Poland), the Budapest College of Economics (Hungary), and many other educational institutions.

Dr. Mayer is presently a professor at the Werner Institute for Negotiation and Dispute Resolution at Creighton University and a Partner at CDR Associates in Boulder, Colorado. In addition, he consults and trains in conflict management throughout the world.

THE WORKSHOP:
In honor of our 30th anniversary, Dr. Mayer has created a special, interactive workshop for us: 'Perspectives on Family Mediation: Learning from the past, looking to the future'.

Drawing from his highly popular books entitled "Staying with Conflict" and "The Dynamics of Conflict", Dr. Mayer will focus on:

  • The six faces of conflict
  • What mediators bring to the conflict table: the foundations of effective mediation
  • Warning signs and opportunities for mediators
  • Essential challenges for mediators
  • Competition and cooperation: the heart of conflict practice
Dr. Mayer will also reflect on how we have grown as a profession over the years. Reflections will include: revisiting and honoring our roots; pioneers and pioneering moments, the emergence of training standards and practice models, etc.

DINNER/DANCE WITH THE VERDICT:
(Mostly) comprised of (mostly) hard-working Ottawa lawyers-by-day-musiciansby- night, The Verdict is a nine-piece rock n’ roll band that plays a limited number of fundraising events each year on behalf of worthwhile local charities. The Verdict belts out cover tunes that get a thirty something-and-over crowd tapping their toes and onto the dance floor. OAFM member and Ottawa mediator Gerry “Stratman” Yemensky plays lead guitar. He and the band always put on an energetic show, perfectly suited for a celebration!

The Verdict has contributed its talents to fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society, the Children’s Hospital for Eastern Ontario (CHEO), the Children’s Wish Foundation, the Children of Chernobyl, Easter Seals, Ottawa Hospital Foundation, the Ottawa Humane Society, Ottawa Regional Cancer Centre Clean Water Project and many other community charities in the Ottawa region.
