NAFCM Webinars

 

Welcome to the home of NAFCM's Community Mediation Webinar Series! NAFCM's webinars are professionally designed, delivered by leaders in the community mediation field, and provide actionable recommendations and tangible resources to enhance key areas of center administration. In designing this series, NAFCM has innovated its traditional in-person trainings to meet the demands of today's community mediation programs.

This series responds to both the continued financial hardships faced by many programs, as well as their local mandates to do even more good with fewer resources. Stripped of the requirement to incur often substantial travel expenses and related out-of-office hassles, the Community Mediation Webinar Series and NAFCM On Demand will allow program administrators, volunteers, and board members to keep atop latest developments and enrich their skills from the comfort of their own office. Read about each of the upcoming individual courses below, review 
our past trainings in our NAFCM On Demand, and register today!

ICE Age: Addressing Heated Conflicts in Immigrant & Migrant Communities

 

Dr. Jeffrey D. Pugh, Executive Director of the Center for Mediation, Peace, & Resolution of Conflict (CEMPROC) and Conflict Resolution professor at the University of Massachusetts Boston

Immigrants and refugees often face particular challenges as they try to integrate into a new community, from navigating new cultures and social expectations to overcoming linguistic barriers and discrimination. Suspicion and distrust toward the police, courts, and other state institutions may make it more difficult for some immigrants to address conflicts and injustices that they experience, leaving conflicts to fester and escalate. For this reason, community mediation can represent a powerful and accessible alternative for addressing conflicts constructively in immigrant communities, including those between migrants and native citizens. The webinar will provide a framework for key factors in using community mediation in these types of cases, and will address issues of power, language, legal status and do no harm, trust, identity representation, and more. It will include examples from research and practice on mediation with immigrants in the United States as well as comparisons with other countries.

The task of defining someone else’s needs within the aging population is a humbling experience that requires asking the right questions and openly listening to the answers given. How do you build trust while taking the task on when you are outside of the demographic? Empowerment is an underlying issue for much of this work: empowering the questioner and empowering the aging individuals you are serving, encountering, and serving.

This session will challenge participants to ask how to recognize ageism, i.e. starting an aging mediation without the consent of the aging person. What are the truths of aging? How do the words we choose impact the work that we do? How can we communicate in ways that respect others, orally, visually, emotively. While asking these questions, it is important to check your assumptions about aging and the “truths” our cultures may have taught us.
