ADVANCED MEDIATION COURSE OVERVIEW

The Advanced Mediation course is designed for dispute resolution professionals who are intent on taking their skills and practice to the next level. This course, organized around a multi-party mediation, deconstructs the mediation process into teaching modules, which include guidance and expertise from industry pioneers.

Practice and reflection is encouraged through online exercises and worksheets (available with course materials). Each module focuses on specific mediation skills unique to stages of the process. In addition, each module includes a discussion of ethical and other issues unique to mediating the complex case.

The course is usually completed in 40 – 45 hours.


Includes a one hour post course consultation with Bruce Edwards

This is a great course that shows you how a mediation really works. My favorite part is the virtual shadowing, where Mr. Edwards allows you to watch his interactions during a mock mediation. It is so authenticate you will forget it is a mock mediation. Plus, the course has wonderful and on-point discussions by knowledgeable experts. This is a gold standard course and I am still taking notes from it.
