Mediation Skills for Complaints Handling

Learn how to resolve complaints more positively using mediation skills

This course specifically addresses the need of groups who wish to train in mediation to resolve complaints at the earliest possible stage. The programme is especially popular with those wishing to incorporate structured mediation skills into their existing roles as complaints managers, tenancy officers, ombudsmen, or registry staff.

Mediation Skills for Complaints Handling aims to train your group to resolve complaints in a more positive way, using the same step-by-step model employed by mediators, and teaches your delegates to resolve all manner of complaints. This use of mediation training has been effectively implemented into healthcare, housing, education, and private sectors.

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 complaints would be suitable for mediation
  • Facilitating conversations between complainants and complainees
