Feedback for Mediators

A Special MCDR Project Funded by MACRO


We are looking for Mediators, Mediator Feedback Observers, and Mediation Role Players

   The Maryland Council for Dispute Resolution (MCDR) has developed a feedback process for mediators, using an hour-long mediation role play, which allows mediators to receive oral feedback both from the role players and from feedback observers who are themselves experienced mediators.  In addition, the observed mediators receive written feedback from the feedback observers.  This process allows for a confidential and supportive way for a mediator to reflect on the observations of the role play mediation, and to consider areas for growth. 

    The next “Feedback Day” will be offered on Saturday, March 27th from 2 to 5 PM by Zoom.  It is open to mediators from all parts of Maryland and to mediators of varying mediation approaches. 

    Because it will be funded by a MACRO grant, it is free for all to participate; mediator feedback observers will each receive an honorarium.  MCDR asks mediators interested in serving as feedback observers to have at least 5 years of experience as a mediator.

   For more information or to express interest in participating as mediator, role player, or feedback observer, please contact:

Ramona Buck;; 443-418-0392 or

Barbara Williams;; 410-730-2106

We will provide an interest form for you to complete and return to us.

We look forward to hearing from you!

     MCDR is the oldest membership-based organization in Maryland dedicated to promoting the use of mediation and supporting

the mediation profession.  We have a proud history of successfully advocating for allowing multiple professions to practice mediation,

halting attempts to restrict the practice some fifteen years ago.  MCDR is the first organization to establish performance based criteria

now in use as a national model, part of an ongoing dialogue on quality assurance and mediator credentials.
