BASIC SKILLS FOR THE NEW MEDIATOR provides a detailed overview of mediation, from the premediation conference through all stages of the mediation session. It guides the new mediator through the mediation process by answering the one hundred questions most frequently asked by new mediators.

The Appendix "Everything You Never Wanted to Know About the Rules of Evidence" is especially valuable for the non-attorney mediator, who must often deal with the evidentiary vocabulary of the legal profession.

    Extremely Valuable for Experienced Mediators, Too

    I read the first edition of this book until my copy fell apart. I was delighted to see that Judge Goodman has written a revised second edition of Basic Skills for the New Mediator. It is clearly written by a mediator who knows what he is talking about. The detailed table of contents and the new index in the back of the book allow me to quickly locate and read a discussion of any topic. The author also invites his readers to ask him questions about mediation by email. Even though I am an experienced mediator, this book is valuable to me. If you want to learn how to mediate, or how to become a better mediator - buy this book!

    Informative, easy to read and comprehend, thorough.

    I found Basic Skills For The New Mediator to be an excellent guidebook for all mediators, new and seasoned. As a mediator and trainer myself, I found topics that I had overlooked to include in my material. Allan Goodman writes with a style that encompasses readers of all levels, regardless of background or expertise. As the title suggests 'basic', without the unnecessary fluff that so many books on the subject contain. I am looking forward to reading Basic Skills For The New Arbitrator.
