This newsletter supplements the last one with some news and updates.

First, Mediator Communication Competencies had had a significant price drop.  You can get it at for about thirty dollars -- including postage.  Institutions can order it in bulk for twenty-five dollars.  With the price change I've added it to my front page ( ) as a recommended book.

Basic Skills for the New Mediator, by Allan H. Goodman has gone into second edition paperback.  It remains a great introductory text.

Interesting new Mediation & ADR (and other) web sites and useful links:


The focus is on the "etc." this time.  The following e-mail (received recently) is presented without comment:




"Finally, A Professional Mediator Training Course that Allows You to Study From Home... and Costs Almost Nothing to Get Started!"

Dear Friend,

Imagine for a moment that it is 4 to 12 months from today...

Suppose you could enroll in our correspondence course and become a Certified Professional Business and Family Mediator.

Imagine that in the next 4 to 12 months you will be earning $150 per hour as a respected and Certified Professional Business and Family Mediator.

Sounds too good to be true?

Well, it isn't thanks to the American Center for Conflict Resolution Institute's internationally recognized and respected distance learning 80 Hour Mediator Certification Course.

Think about it. Having a Certification from a nationally known conflict resolution organization is the best way to quickly add credentials to your resume. Simply put, increased credentials, at a fraction of the cost, means that you can demand more money for your services...$150, $250 or $500+ per hour!

In addition, this distance learning Mediator Certification Course is offered at a fraction of the cost of classroom courses, which means more money in your pocket.

If you enroll by December 31, 2005, you will receive $200.00 off the regular tuition of $1,088 so your price is only $ the 2 free bonus gifts:

"How To Make it Big Resolving Disputes", 2nd Edition, Hard Copy-a complete step-by-step blueprint for your success in the Alternative Dispute Resolution profession. Every step is carefully explained. Nothing is left to your imagination to guess how to put it all together or which tools to use. It applies to all fields in Alternative Dispute Resolution. It includes immediate avenues to becoming a mediator, arbitrator, conflict resolution trainer, and much, much more...($60.00 Value)

"The New Mediator's Kit"- Computer forms, documents, checklists, and worksheets in a handy carrying case for the professional, prepared mediator. ($350.00 value)

Together these two bonus gifts (valued at $410.00) plus the $200.00 discount is being offered for just a short while towards the cost of your entire 80 Hour Professional Business and Family Mediator Certification Program--but you must order by midnight December 31, 2005. That's $610.00 in savings to you!

Get started today for only $39.00 down payment by clicking here or call (330) 564-1222 or 1-800-517-0857 and give promo code 13916.

If you complete the below form we will mail free career literature within 24 hours!

Submissions to

As always, I am interested in any submissions or articles anyone would like to have posted on the web -- and I am glad to be able to point them out in this newsletter.  I prefer to post material as you have written it, with no editorial changes by myself.  srmarsh (at) adrr (dot) com is the best e-mail address to use to reach me, though I sometimes am not able to check my e-mail for 3 or 4 days.

With my best regards, I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Stephen Marsh
