Learning level: Advanced
This four-day online 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 processes and techniques, as well as practical mediation problems and practice issues.
Presented through a process-oriented lens, this course explores pre-mediation meetings, facilitating joint sessions, and adapting the process to party needs. Participants will be encouraged to reflect on party self-determination and power dynamics (systemic and personal).
Participants will engage in more than 10 hours of roleplay practice coached by experienced mediators with varied practice specializations. Participants will be introduced to co-mediation skills, and all participants will have the chance to co-mediate two scenarios. The course will examine some of the challenges and opportunities of conducting mediations online.
