Becoming a Mediator
Your Guide to Career Opportunities
With Emily Doskow, 2004
The need for mediation is growing by leaps and bounds—and qualified mediators are needed to fill the demand. This book is your guide through all the possible careers in the field.
Most mediators feel that helping people end conflicts is special work, and, they’re sustained by rewards beyond money, praise, or fame. But with no obvious career path and no prescribed courses to take or degrees to earn, how does one become a mediator? Whatever your background—whether in law, social work, teaching, psychology, business, homemaking, or parenting—you can become a mediator and find a satisfying career says Peter Lovenheim. Becoming a Mediator shows you how, offering a practical, nuts-and-bolts guide to breaking into the field and a no-nonsense approach to the reality of current professional opportunities.
