Program Details:
Ever ask yourself, “I’ve reflected…now what?” What about, “When do I build an agenda?” Or, “Did I gather enough information? Too much?” Or, just, “OMG. What do I do now?” If so, this training is for you.

In our Advanced Mediation Training (AMT), we go beyond the basics and take a deep dive into the trickiest parts of mediation, all in a small group setting. Whether it’s building an agenda, dealing with high emotion, or generating and assessing options, this training will expand your comfort zone and tackle the most challenging aspects of mediation.

Key Content:

  • Agenda-building
  • Mediation-stage transitions
  • Interest-based reflection
  • Managing cross-talk, high emotion
  • Cross-cultural mediation
  • Core-skill refresher exercises

Through hands-on activities, extensive role plays, group discussion, peer feedback, and of course, movie clips and pop culture, the AMT will tone your mediator muscles. Whether you just completed the Basic Mediation Training or have been mediating for years, this training provides an opportunity to receive focused coaching in a small group environment as you practice your craft in the company of experienced professionals. In short, if you liked Basic Mediation Training, you will love our deep dive.
