Who should attend: Mediators in training wanting to experiment with process, build their skills, and learn new ones.
Learning level: Advanced
This three-day course builds on the foundation provided by the Fundamentals of Mediation course (or an equivalent) by introducing more skills and providing lots of practice opportunities. The course features advanced process and techniques as well as practical mediation problems and practice issues.
Presented through an interest-based negotiation lens, the course also explores other mediation approaches and encourages thought and discussion about mediation philosophy. Participants should expect focused, intensive coaching of role play practice sessions (on Days 2 and 3) by accomplished mediators.
Upon completion of Fundamentals of Mediation and Advanced Mediation Skills for Non-Family Mediators, you will receive a Certificate of Attendance confirming completion of 40 hours of mediation training. This course is approved by Mediate BC as an acceptable mediation course towards qualification for the Civil Roster.
After taking this course you will be able to…
- identify a range of mediation theories and the negotiation philosophies of participants and counsel
- prepare for mediation including participant readiness, location choice, and paperwork
- execute mediation process informed by a sequenced framework
- use questioning, reflective, and intervention skills to help advance the negotiation
