The Stitt Feld Handy Group conducts four-day public workshops on alternative dispute resolution (negotiation and mediation skills). Our courses are conducted in joint venture with the University of Windsor Law School (Canada) and participants receive a University Certificate upon completion. We use an interactive approach, as participants learn by doing rather than by listening to lectures. We strive to give our workshop participants the skills and confidence to Expect Success.

We design customized workshops for clients in both the private and public sectors. We work closely with our clients to develop a curriculum that works for them.
