Basic Mediation Training

MEDIATION: Tools for successful problem solving

Mediation skills provide you with the tools to help others resolve their differences in a safe, empowering forum. Mediation is a process that allows the parties themselves to create solutions they can live with. Relationships may be preserved, dignity upheld and agreements negotiated that allow the participants to move on in their lives without an ongoing battle, costly court fees or bitter disappointment which can arise from an unfavorable judicial decision.

Training Objectives

Basic mediation offers an introduction to a facilitative model of mediation and the core skills of effective listening, asking powerful questions, maintaining neutrality, interest identification, negotiation, agreement writing, ethical considerations, and managing challenges.

The training is designed to provide a basic understanding and hands-on use of:

MEDIATION: A forum for resolving conflict in an informal, less adversarial manner.

CONFLICT MANAGEMENT STYLE: What it takes to be a successful mediator.

MEDIATION MODEL: A basic model of mediation to conduct and maintain an effective process.
