Mediator Refresher Course

Introduction brief:

SMC’s Mediation Skills Refresher Program is a 25 hours advanced mediation training program designed to refresh, recharge, and prepare mediators to effectively facilitate the mediation process.

This program focuses on best practices for mediators, including how a mediator serves as a negotiation consultant, dealing with challenging behaviors, overcoming barriers to agreement, challenges to neutrality, and dealing with power differentials. This program is currently being offered online via Zoom.

The aim of this course is to give you a refresher of your training and to send you away feeling confident and ready to take on your next cases.

At the conclusion of the training, you should be able to:

  • Re-visit the staged model for interpersonal mediation: remembering the structure and function of each stage
  • Feel confident in your use of key mediation skills
  • Have some additional insights into cases you and others are working on
  • Have a renewed awareness of some aspects of best practice and how to deal with mediation dilemmas
  • Be able to set up and run an online mediation case

To refresh your memory on the mediation process, and the essential communication skills used by the mediator to facilitate dialogue between the parties throughout the process.

Preparation for mediation is an important part of the process. Understand essential steps that assist preparation for the parties and the mediator, and the value this brings to the mediation.
