Mediation Skills 2

Participants will build on and strengthen their capacity to make use of the comprehensive model for conducting interpersonal mediation that was introduced in Mediation Skills I. Skills related to conducting initial interviews, co-mediator planning, follow-up preparation/coaching, and carrying out mediation in situations where parties have an ongoing relationship will be strengthened.  

Additional frameworks and skills related to addressing other challenges that inevitably arise in the course of mediation will also be explored

 Mediation Skill 1 + 2 have been amalgamated into our 5-day Basic Mediation Skills interactive course.  You will learn all the essential mediation skills but more streamlined in this series. This exciting change will premiere in Spring 2022.

(Prerequisite: Introduction to Conflict Resolution and Mediation Skills I)

In partnership with Facilitated Solutions, this three-day workshop provides participants with the opportunity to: 

  • Deepen their understanding and capacity to use the comprehensive model for intervening in multi-incident conflict introduced in Mediation Skills 1 (from initial assessment, to coaching, mediation, and closure); 
  • Strengthen their capacity to conduct both case development and mediation processes that, in turn, draw heavily on skills and concepts learned in Introduction to Conflict Resolution and Mediation Skills 1 (e.g. probing and paraphrasing); 
  • Explore, as time permits, additional frameworks and skills for addressing challenging situations such as: when the leader who called you in is seen to be a contributor in the conflict, when parties have a lengthy history of unaddressed tensions, and/or parties are initially reluctant to participate; and 
  • Continue to improve interpersonal listening, leadership, and assertiveness skills in the role of a third-party mediator.
