Your Brain on Conflict
In this workshop we will discuss basic brain structures and functions - how they affect behavior and are affected by behavior. We will also discuss neurotransmitters that are important in both producing and interpreting behavior. This knowledge will form the basis for a discussion of how we can influence behavior during times of conflict. We will take typical situations faced by managers and employees, and apply the knowledge of neuroscience to guide us towards more satisfying and effective interactions.

On March 19, 2012, the Department of Justice hosted a Symposium on ADR, co-sponsored by the Interagency ADR Working Group (IADRWG) and the Administrative Conference of the United States (ACUS) with Chairman Paul Verkuil moderating the discussion. Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr., the head of the ADR Working Group, described the Department's long standing commitment to ADR use and cited many of the impressive results of the use of mediation in resolving disputes with citizens and across the federal government. Other panelists showcased new and innovative programs involving workplace disputes, enforcement of regulations, contracts disputes with the government and other new and emerging areas.
