We’ll focus on mediation, conflict transformation and resolution theory and skills, taking plenty of time over the five day training to instruct, discuss and reinforce the fundamental mediator skills and responsibilities, supported by group work, role-plays and directed feedback from trained mediators. The course emphasizes the following:

  • Bringing Clients to the Table
  • Dealing with Strong Emotions
  • Working with and through Impasse
  • Fostering Communication
  • Identifying Empowerment and Recognition Opportunities
  • Self-Awareness Inventory & Development
  • Hands-on conflict intervention skills necessary to mediate
  • Mediator Standards of Practice and Ethics
  • Individual feedback from trainers addressing participants’
    specific strengths and areas for continued development and excellence.
