HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. — The Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation will host a one-day workshop for lawyers, “Managing Difficult Clients: Effective Strategies for Working with Emotional Clients in Conflict,” on Tuesday, May 22, at Hofstra Law School, Room 243, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m.

In this workshop, attorneys will acquire a road map for working with clients in emotional conflicts by learning skills that will help them to improve the quality of their relationships with clients, their effectiveness in representing difficult clients and their comfort in counseling clients. Participants will also learn how to help clients move through conflict and strong emotion so that the clients are able to make decisions about effective representation.

Jody B. Miller, executive director of the Mediation Center of Dutchess County, and Peter Miller, a professional mediator who has participated in more than 2,000 mediations, will train participants. Paula Pace, an attorney and mediator in private practice, will moderate the workshop.

The workshop costs $325 and 7.5 non-transitional CLE credits in skills are available. For information about CLE scholarships, contact Diane Dobson at admin@transformativemediation.org. For more information about the workshop or to register, visit transformativemediation.org or call 516-463-7220.
