...my feelings about the mediation process changed significantly, opening my mind to a new way of bringing people with adverse positions together.... I encourage all family law practitioners to spend one week of their careers for training in facilitative mediation techniques at your facility.

I came as a skeptic - I leave as a believer. I was never bored. Your willingness to allow questions and responsiveness to those concerns is great. Your knowledge and experience gave me a great deal of confidence and understanding. The materials reflect a great deal of detail and thought. They are extremely helpful.

Truly - The Mediation Master. Very supportive. Created an atmosphere where parties could feel comfortable asking questions and trying things out. Good incorporation of Theory and Practice. Excellent examples & "war stories." Written materials were comprehensive and helpful.

I feel this course would be useful to me even if I never mediated a case. It has been very helpful in providing tools & techniques for resolving conflict - which is a big portion of real life. Not only was the course helpful & informative, the sessions and role plays were fun.

The Eight Rules of Framing, which takes about 10 minutes to complete, walks you through each suggested rule and often provides an opportunity for you to choose possible alternative approaches and see how the couple might react. Nice job Zena!

What a wonderful role model, teacher, and professional. Thank You!

Wonderful presenter. I marveled at her energy to do a 40-hour workshop. She clearly has a wealth of knowledge & experience to share. It was a privilege to be introduced to mediation by one of the best in the field. I hope, as a student, I can do her justice.
