Planning at Divorce, Not Resolving Disputes:  A Game Theory Based Negotiation and Mediation Model

Using Game Theory, problems with traditional divorce are analyzed and illuminated. In addition, the presenters take the next step, and develop and propose a negotiation and mediation model that takes the dispute out of settlement negotiations and maximizes the outcomes for both parties.  In this presentation, you will learn about Game Theory and the research that undergirds and supports its effectiveness, hear easy to use principles distilled and derived from Game Theory that apply to family law, and learn practical and pragmatic tools and skills for use in negotiations and mediation to deal with even the most complex of divorce issues.  

You will understand how Game Theory can predict choices and shape decision-making. Key areas covered include the management of information, the identification of objective and subjective goals, bargaining tools that focus parties on high value outcomes, content and process standards by which to measure agreements and techniques for transforming what might begin as a dispute but becomes a life goal- based planning process.  

  • The Game Theory model makes communication and cooperation the rational choice rather than conflict and competition.  
  • Role plays demonstrate the application of the principles, skills and tools to real cases, by practicing how to separate Multiple Games in to Single Games and Mixed Games into Simple Games.
  • You will learn how to change the rules and the payoffs, and thereby change the game:  where the pot expands from 100% to 146%!
