Mediation Skills Workshop
Mediating is an important skill to have. We face potential conflicts everyday, whether in our personal lives or in the workplace. This two-day mediation training aims at providing you with the necessary tools for effectively dealing with those conflicts and the skills needed to be a successful mediator. The workshop is designed for professionals with all backgrounds as well as students interested in exploring the exciting and expanding field of conflict resolution. Participants in the workshop will acquire the necessary skills used in mediating conflicts and engage in role-play scenarios to analyze and perfect those skills. Those skills include: planning a mediation; stages of a mediation process; reframing; conflict mapping; active listening; problem solving; writing an agreement; etc. Those who complete the two-day workshop will receive a Certificate of Completion from Guilford College, Peace and Conflict Studies Department.
