Families in Transition: Elder and Family Decision Making Through a Mediation Model
Presented by: Dan Bechtol, MA - Executive Director, Concord Mediation Center
Families in transition create intense changes in family dynamics. Whether it is personal care and living arrangements or financial planning and wealth management, these conversations are challenging and typically occur during a crisis events or during time-sensitive incidents. But it’s the way we handle conflict that can make all the difference in achieving goals for the future. This session will provide participants with a deeper appreciation and understanding of the dynamics of family systems and generational conflict involving aging parents and adult siblings and will explore a variety of ways to handle and resolve conflict to repair and build stronger relationships and improve familial stability. Participants will learn the importance of understanding the people involved in the situation, how to control the communication process, and tips for problem-solving to achieve age and situation related conflict resolution.
