There are eight difficult mediation role plays, which are all coached, each raising new issues for mediators to consider, such as using a pre-mediation caucus, managing complexity of issues and parties, using a one text approach, dealing with ethical dilemmas, and managing unreasonable and unrepresented parties.
Additionally, you will apply the skills learned at the first two workshops and learn new skills during a mentoring session in which you get to work on the problem, skill, or issue of your choice. You will work individually with one of the instructors to find innovative ways to deal with your chosen issue. After the course, you will have the opportunity to sit in on a real mediation in Toronto or via ZOOM with one of our mediators.
At the in-person sessions, a continental breakfast and catered lunch will be served each day of the workshop. Snacks, coffee and drinks will be available throughout the day.
This workshop is part of the Executive Certificate in Conflict Management.
All upcoming sessions will be Virtual Instructor-Led using ZOOM technology. Using ZOOM, the program will continue to be interactive and engaging involving role plays, exercises, small group discussions and coached mediation role plays. We are limiting the session to 24 participants.
Practical and Interactive Training
We offer intensive and interactive learning experiences for professionals and executives. You will participate in dynamic exercises and case studies, with two-way and coached feedback. The concepts and approaches you will learn have proven successful in the real world, and can be applied immediately to your situation.
Who Should Attend?
The Applied Alternative Dispute Resolution Workshop is designed for people who want to enhance their ability to resolve disputes in their workplace or as professional mediators.
“ The virtual instructor-led format worked great. I appreciated the chance to work on the skills that I have never focused on before.”
