The Pennsylvania Supreme Court recently adopted new Orphans’ Court Rules that include a provision for mediation. The new statewide Orphans’ Court Rules will become effective on 9/1/2016. This comprehensive mediator training program is appropriate for beginning mediators, experienced mediators who want to refresh their basic mediation skills while adding elder and estates issues to their repertoire, and estates and elder law attorneys who want to learn to mediate or represent clients in mediation. The trainers use a combination of role-play, lecture, simulation, discussion and videotapes of actual mediation. The curriculum will include basic mediation process skills, how elder mediation supports older adults, their families and caregivers as they engage in difficult conversations about issues that occur as a result of life cycle events, changes in physical and cognitive status, and/or loss often associated with aging; and techniques and issues specifically related to estates and trust administration: Introduction to Conflict Theory Mediator styles, skills and techniques Confidentiality Mediator neutrality, impartiality & conflicts of interest Conflicts Associated with Aging Sensitivity to the Aging Process Aging Biases and the Mediation Process Intake and Convening Selecting an Appropriate Process Inter-generational Family Dynamics Capacity Issues and Accommodations Screening for Elder Abuse Use of Support Persons and Advocates Facilitating Family Decision-Making Legal and Ethical Considerations Multi-party family decision-making process Powers of attorney Wills and trusts Estate administration This workshop meets the draft core training objectives set forth by the Elder Mediation Training Work Group (EMTWG), a national committee that has been working.
