Founded in 1977 by Stephen Erickson, J.D., and Marilyn McKnight, M.A. as Family Mediation Services, Erickson Mediation Institute (EMI) offers a safe, confidential, economical and fair process to arrive at a successful mediation settlement. EMI was the first divorce mediation firm in the Midwest, and continues to be one of the largest private, full-time and full-service mediation firms in the country. In 1980, Steve conducted the first 40-Hour Divorce Mediation Training in the country in Fort Lauderdale, FL, and also co-wrote the manual and co-designed the curriculum for that training, the core of which is still used today around the country and abroad. EMI has since trained thousands of professionals including judges, pastors and mental health professionals throughout the US, Canada, England, Singapore, the Netherlands, India and United Arab Emirates.
