Mediation webinars

Webinars: the best way to see what we have to offer

Our mediation webinar is your opportunity to learn about a different aspect of mediation each month. We like to focus on a variety of topics - past webinars have included presentations on how mediation works and how to become a mediator (both of which are still available to view in the archive below), while also looking at how mediation can help specific sectors, such as healthcare, universities and the private sector.

Everyone is welcome to attend our webinars. While some of them touch on the psychology behind interpersonal conflict and mediation, we won’t bamboozle you with science! The content is delivered in a very accessible and engaging way and we always make sure there’s sufficient time at the end for any questions you may have.

We look forward to welcoming you to the next webinar!
