Mediator refresher session - reboot your mediation skills

What does this course achieve?

You might have attended your mediator skills training some time ago and yet have had limited opportunities to formally practice your skills. You might, in fact, be meditating regularly but find that it is a lonely pursuit and you would like the opportunity to debrief your practice. We are offering a one-day refresher session for you to reboot your skills and work through ideas to boost your mediation practice. The program will be facilitated by John Brand, Felicity Steadman and Marion Shaer.

    • learn about how the mediator works with the parties to broaden their perspectives, generate ideas and move towards a workable settlement, as well as faciltiate effective information exchange and actively assist the negotiation process.
