Mediation Skills 1
Participants will be introduced to a comprehensive model for conducting interpersonal mediation. A process that typically unfolds over a period of weeks and months will be explored intensively over 3 action-packed days.
Skills related to conducting initial interviews and assessment, co-mediator planning, follow-up preparation/coaching, and carrying out joint meetings in situations where parties have an ongoing relationship will be explored and practiced.
Introduction to Conflict Resolution is a prerequisite for our Mediation Stream and needs to be taken prior to this training. We currently have it on the calendar on September 8 + 9, 2021 or we have the Asynchronous training available.
Participants attending this workshop will have the opportunity to:
- Learn a comprehensive mediation model for intervening in multi-incident conflict (i.e. from initial interviews to assessment to coaching, joint session, and closure);
- Learn specific frameworks for conducting both case development and joint session(s) that, in turn, draw and build on skills and concepts learned in Introduction to Conflict Resolution: Dealing with Difficult People.
- Improve interpersonal listening, leadership, and assertiveness skills in the role of a third-party mediator.
