Most mediators would concur that emotional intelligence (EQ) is a key component of a successful mediation process.  In a perfect world, the participating parties and lawyers would have high EQ and could discuss the dispute without becoming so overwhelmed by strong emotions that they make poor decisions.  In most mediations, however, parties and even lawyers struggle with emotional self-regulation.  What can we do to increase the emotional intelligence of the people involved in mediation? This presentation takes a look at a science-based strategy that mediators can use during or before a mediation that has been shown to increase the ability of parties to self-regulate emotions during a difficult conversation.
