The Psychology of Settlement in Dispute Resolution and Mediation


What basic knowledge of human psychology do mediators need to increase their competency for the successful resolution of disputes? Conversely, what basic knowledge of human psychology – if absent in the mediator – hinders the successful resolution of disputes?

In this session, examine psychological factors that affect the mediator and the parties to a mediation before mediation, during the mediation process in joint session and in caucus, and post-settlement agreement compliance. This session reviews the psychology of settlement including the dynamics, biases and process of settlement.
