Mediation awareness training
This workshop introduces delegates to the concept of mediation and highlights its effectiveness in relation to conflicts.
Effective dispute resolution services have always been regarded as something that a civilised society should provide for its citizens. Where parties cannot agree outcomes for themselves, a principled and neutral process offering an adjudicated outcome has typically been established by mutual social consent.
In addition to an overview of the historical landscape of mediation, by the end of the seminar delegates will be able to:
- identify key benefits of the process
- distinguish the framework and phases of mediation
- distinguish cases which are both suitable and non suitable for mediation
- identify key skills, which contribute to effective mediation practice
- know how to introduce a mediation culture.
Programme content will include:
- CEDR - mission and services
- Mediation - history, process, structure
- The benefits of using mediation
- A role-play demonstration
- Practical application of mediation.
