Workshops That May Be Planned to Fit the Client's Needs
Basic Mediation Skills (28 hours - 12-24 participants)
Mediation is a conflict management process in which a neutral third party, the mediator, assists parties in reaching resolution of the problem that brought them to mediation. Through the exploration of parties’ interests, concerns, and fears, their options for solution, and the criteria by which these options should be considered, the mediator helps parties reach a greater understanding of the presenting problem and, hopefully, of the factors that contributed to the problem.
