A myth is a commonly-held but false belief, a common misconception, or a popular conception which exaggerates or idealizes reality (see here for more definitions).
Does the mediation world have its own myths? In this episode facilitated by Tammy Lenski, Diane Levin and Amanda Bucklow discuss persistent myths in our field, where they come from, how much (if any) truth is in them, and what we think should be done with them.
We focus on these three questions:
What persistent myths most vex us and why?
What do those myths, individually or collectively, do to public understanding of our work?
What should mediators and other ADR professionals do when they hear these myths perpetuated?
