As you know there are different styles of mediating, i.e. facilitative, evaluative, transformative, etc. Have you heard about “Surprise Mediation”? Ok, it’s not exactly a mediation style. According to this article in The Arizona Republic – ‘Surprise offers mediation as an alternative to court’. The city of Surprise, Arizona has a community mediation program which offers free mediation services to city residents and local businesses – hence, “Surprise Mediation” [you figured that out by now, right?].

I start a 40 hour Family Mediation Certification Training program tomorrow and will post again next week. Please have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
