Dr. Peter Maida

My mediation practice focuses on the following areas: Separation and Divorce, Custody, EEOC, Workplace Mediation, ADA Mediation. Second, I am certified to administer the Conflict Dynamics Inventory to assist workplace team building, executive coaching and counseling. Third, I have provided mediation and negotiation training including a basic 40 hour mediation and numerous advanced trainings made to order for the client. Fourth, I am developing a nationwide roster of people trained to administer
a psychometric test which I developed, “Trans-acting in the Workplace”.

In the next half year I will be offering 3 training webinars: Bowen’s concept of Differentiation (3 hours) , A Family Mediation Tool; Administering, Scoring, Couching and Counseling using the results of Trans-acting in the Workplace (6 hours); Basic Family Mediation Training (40 hours).

Extensive years of training experience. Have received training to administer the Conflict Dynamics Inventory. Will present workshops on the use of the Trans-acting in the Workplace assessment too.

I am offering the opportunity for interested dispute resolvers to participate in a training as to the use of Trans-acting in the Workplace. This psychometric tool assesses communication in the workplace and provides insight into how all parties who work together manage to maintain their roles vis-a-vis others in the workplace. The main goal of the test is to address the dysfunctional interaction. When we think of the day-to-day interaction among those in the workplace, particularly when we are asked to help parties resolve their differences, we bring any number of theories and techniques to bear. Over the years, certain concepts come to the fore and are repeatedly used by individual dispute resolvers not only to assess the conflict but also to provide counseling and recommendations for amelioration.

Test takers are asked to rank their behavior resulting in scores that are used by the test administrator to create profiles either of the individual or of the group. These profiles, in turn, are used to provide counseling and recommendations for future behavior. A high score in a profile represents a strength and a low score represents a weakness.
