This three-day course will present a thorough examination of mediation principles and techniques. The program faculty will analyze the structure of a typical mediation, highlight ethical issues that may arise in mediation, and explore solutions for generating movement and overcoming impasse. The program faculty will explore the differences between facilitative and evaluative or directive approaches in mediation, both from a practical and from an ethical perspective, and will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of these styles. The instructors will focus on experiential learning through role plays and dialogue to help prepare you for the real world of commercial mediation.
