Limited enrolment. Register early to avoid disappointment!
Who should attend: Mediators in training wanting to experiment with process, build their skills, and learn new skills.
*Prerequisite: Fundamentals of Mediation, Family Law Mediation Level 1/Introduction to Family Dispute Resolution, or equivalent foundation-level mediation course from another provider.
Learning level: Fundamental/Intermediate
This three-day course builds on the foundation provided by the Fundamentals of Mediation Level 1 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 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 Mediation Skills Level 2, 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.
This course will not focus on family law issues nor provide training in family dynamics.
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 and location of choice
- manage a civil mediation process, including pre-mediation meetings
- use questioning, reflective, and intervention skills to help advance the negotiation
- structure and conduct separate meetings with participants
- make informed decisions about how to capture agreement
*DISCLAIMER: In order to receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of the course, learners are required to participate fully in the course. "Full participation" is at the faculty's sole discretion. Activities such as reading the paper, watching videos on the computer, not being present, engaging in phone calls, and disrupting the class with irrelevant activities will demonstrate lack of full participation.
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 24 hours (a minimum of 3 hours will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
