About our principal instructors...
Dr. Frank Hanna, along with his partner Nancy Peterson, M.Med., have instructed students from locations all over the world. In July of 2006 Dr. Hanna instructed mediators in Scottsdale, Arizona and Nancy Peterson was able to teach with him via the internet from her office in New York using specialized, interactive technology.

He explains, "Early in the 1990's I made the emotive decision to change my career path from my position as senior partner of my law practice in Belfast, Northern Ireland to mediation.
Needless to say this was a somewhat brave move for me as mediation was virtually unheard of, and certainly not in active practice in Northern Ireland. I researched extensively and decided the most prestigious training, and arguably the best, would be found at Harvard University in the USA.
I got my training and after a few stumbling mediations, found my Harvard training, whilst good in concept, had not prepared me for actual real-world mediations. This was the impetus behind writing my book, Conflict Resolution and Mediation in the Real World, and formed the concepts behind the coursework for our 40-60 hour classes."
