Basic Mediation Course

Mediation International offers a basic mediation training course designed to be offered in-house.

(2-3 days: 15-25 hours)

In this course we will examine negotiation strategies with a focus on collaborative negotiation. We will employ various teaching strategies including, discussion, role-plays, exercises, simulations and self assessments. Throughout the 2-3 day course we will focus on communication, negotiation and the structure and aims of mediation. Participants will witness experienced mediators in action and see first hand the skills and techniques mediators use to guide parties to overcome barriers in dispute resolution.
