Busting Mediation Myths Using Neuroscience

Jill Tanz, JD, and Martha McClintock, PhD, just started a Mediation Myth Busters blog to explain how applying neuroscience concepts can improve mediation. They recently co-authored an article, The Physiologic Stress Response During Mediation, 32 Ohio State Journal on Dispute Resolution 29 (2017). They plan to add posts about once a month to cover topics such as:

● Stress During Conflict and Mediation
● Science Validates Traditional Mediation Tools
● Rethinking the Structure of Mediations
● The Dangers of Venting
● Dealing with Strong Emotions
