Mediation for the Professional, Presented by the Center for Dispute Settlement

Mediation for the Professional provides an intensive grounding in the techniques of mediation as participants immerse themselves in conflict simulations, many patterned after actual disputes. The 4-day course includes:

  • Lectures and live demonstrations of mediation techniques;
  • Small group simulations designed to provide experience in mediating a wide range of dispute types, including corporate, employment, contract, interpersonal, and public policy issues;
  • Individual critiques and feedback;
  • One evening of three simulations from start to finish, in groups of three;
  • A discussion of ethical dilemmas facing mediators;
  • A discussion of how to gain experience in mediating actual cases;
  • Linda R. Singer’s award-winning book, Settling Disputes: Conflict Resolution in Business, Families, and the Legal System;
  • A training manual, which details each step of the mediation process;
  • Continental breakfasts and snacks. Light supper served on Wednesday evening.

This is the basic mediation training course for attorneys, managers, human resources, and other professionals interested in learning or further developing their mediation skills.
