There is no better training or learning tool than practising what you learn. Scenarios were real and awesome!

What I liked about the workshop was the opportunity to apply mediation principles and put knowledge into practice in a safe environment with constructive coaching and feedback. Role-plays and Exercises allowed practice, feedback and a greater understanding of how to apply the principles learned.

What did I like about the workshop: – Lots of time in actual hands on training. I really liked the environment focused one where it was a “facilitation” to see how we could use these skills in different ways.

Role plays were an extremely effective format to learn about the nuances of mediation.

The role-plays and exercises allowed us to put content into practice and allowed us to ‘learn by doing’. They were very useful and effective.

I got a great opportunity to see the principles and elements of mediation in full force. Instructors were brilliant. Their explanations were fantastic. The role plays and exercises provided an opportunity for the persons to really experience the workings and principles of a mediation session.

Role plays and Exercises: Very good methods to help us understand the application of the principles and to expose us to a variety of different mediation contexts.
