This basic skills training course will locate mediation among the array of dispute resolution processes, and examine the differences between facilitative and evaluative mediation. Participants will learn a step-by-step process to assist parties in conflict to find mutually agreeable solutions.

This course will focus on collaborative, facilitative, interest-based mediation. You will learn the extremely challenging practice of mediating with parties in joint session, face-to-face, and using caucuses where appropriate. You will be encouraged to provide a process that offers substantive, procedural and psychological satisfaction to all parties.

Through a mix of theory and practice, participants will learn the skills, tools and processes used by mediators. We will examine each stage of the mediation process, and participants will engage in simulated mediations drawn from a range of settings. Individual coaches will observe roleplay mediations and assist participants to debrief and learn from all simulations. Attendees will be challenged to become more self-aware, and to develop new skills to provide better mediation services to clients.
