Mediation Skills for Family Relationships
This course specifically addresses the need of groups who wish to train in mediation to resolve disputes between family members at the earliest possible stage. The programme is especially popular with those wishing to incorporate structured mediation skills into their existing roles working with families. This could be as part of a charity organisation or occasionally with local authorities.
This course aims to train your group to resolve interpersonal disputes in a more positive way, using the same step-by-step model employed by mediators, and teaches your delegates to resolve all manner of interpersonal disputes that families might face. Examples featured on the course could include disputes around unwanted behaviour, substance abuse, miscommunications, and personality clashes.
On the course, you will learn:
- Key mediation skills: a selection of essential tools drawn from our 5-day qualification course
- The opportunities, benefits, and limitations of running facilitated conversations
- How to decide which sorts of disputes would be suitable for this approach
- Facilitating conversations between family members
- Building mediation skills into your professional role
This course is designed for groups of 4-12 delegates when delivered online, or for 6-16 delegates when delivered face-to-face. If you are an individual looking for similar training, we would recommend our open-access Mediation Skills for Facilitated Conversations course.
