Who should attend: Anyone who has taken a minimum of 40 hours of family mediation training and would like the opportunity to focus on exploring and consolidating mediator presence.

Learning level: Advanced

This advanced level course is designed for those who have participated in mediations as counsel or as mediators. It also will benefit those who have taken mediation training, yet have never “hung out their shingle” and offered their services as a family law mediator. Public awareness and provincial legislation have created increased demand for mediation, and mediation expertise (whether as counsel or mediator) is now widely considered to be a core competency for lawyers. Here is a rare opportunity to deepen your expertise.

Learning with a small group in a relaxed setting on beautiful Hornby Island promises to be a truly unique experience. The course is intended to be reflective and interactive in nature—it does not include electronic teaching aids/materials.

We will focus upon consolidating mediator presence, giving particular attention to:

  • deepening conflict analysis to create effective process
  • working with tough interpersonal dynamics in mediation
  • naming the struggle with courage, clarity, and compassion
  • being fully present and meeting clients “at the crossroads”
  • developing ways to work with anxious personalities and deep-rooted anger
  • letting go: helping parties overcome their fear of closure
  • taking the leap to becoming a mediator

Between sessions, participants will be free to walk Hornby’s beaches, experience the bluffs of Helliwell Park, cycle the island’s many wooded trails, and savour the delectable cuisine of Hornby's famous Sea Breeze Lodge. The course is preceded by a reception at Sally Campbell's home on Sunday, October 2, 2016.

Welcoming Reception: You are invited to a welcoming reception at the home of the Course Instructor Sally S. Campbell, from 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm (location instructions to follow).
