Limited enrolment. Register early to avoid disappointment!
Who should attend: Mediators working in mediation programs in the courts or institutional settings; mediators in private practice interested in broadening the context of their mediation; administrators in mediation programs who have mediation training; or anyone wanting to work on skills and discuss difficult problems.
Learning level: Advanced
This two-day, practice oriented, advanced level session is of particular interest to lawyer-mediators engaged in either family or general mediation work. Participants must have at least 40 hours of formal mediation training, although many will have substantially more.
The course will feature more advanced skills training, discussion of contemporary problems in the field, and clinical mediation experimentation. It will concentrate on continuous development of the mediator’s attitude, process, and skills at an advanced level. The session is tailored around the common experience base of those who attend, with particular emphasis on the sorts of problems participants bring to the course.
After taking this course you will be able to...
- identify and address the assertive use of transactional power
- acknowledge and respond to cultural diversity in the mediation
- alter the mediation process to meet the parties' needs and expectations
- recognize and address emotion during mediation
- practice authenticity by developing your personal mediator style
- deal with unexpected challenges from participants and counsel
This course also counts towards the 80 hour training requirement for family law mediators.
*Note: Please bring your copy of The Practice of Mediation: Exploring Attitude, Process and Skills (Gordon Sloan and Jamie Chicanot) to the course. If you do not have a copy, one will be provided for you.
Law Society of BC CPD Hours: 16 hours (a minimum of 3 hours will involve aspects of professional responsibility and ethics, client care and relations, and/or practice management)
