In our Advanced Mediation Training, we go beyond the basics and take a deep dive into the trickiest parts of mediation. From suspending biases and crafting agenda, to breaking impasse and building consensus, this training will expand your comfort zone and tackle the most challenging aspects of mediation.

Through hands-on exercises, extensive role plays, group discussion, and of course movie clips and pop culture, our advanced training will build your mediator muscle memory. Whether you just completed your Basic Mediation Training or have been mediating for years, this training provides an opportunity to receive focused coaching 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.

New York Peace Institute’s Apprenticeship is a structured hands-on learning experience that blends classroom instruction with case observation and real mediation. This program is designed to equip you to become a volunteer mediator with New York Peace Institute. However, we also support the learning and development of individuals wishing to gain mediator skills and credentials for their outside practice.

Apprentices learn and practice concepts introduced in the Basic Mediation Training with greater depth in a small group setting. The course is also designed to prepare apprentices to pass New York Peace Institute’s evaluation.

Our program is approved by New York State’s Office of Alternative Dispute Resolution and Court Improvement Programs and is geared toward recruiting a diverse and qualified cadre of Community Dispute Resolution Center Program volunteer mediators. In other words, our goal is to train, develop, and support individuals who are passionate about mediation.

*Please note that this refers to the classroom-based curriculum. The full Apprenticeship, which includes co-mediating five cases and observing three, can take up to one year to complete.

**Due to COVID-19, the Summer 2022 Apprenticeship will be fully virtual.

***We heavily favor applications from New York Peace Institute alumni and encourage any outside applicants to first take our Basic Mediation Training.

****Applications will close Friday, May 20th, 2022 at 5pm ET.

This training lays the groundwork for anyone interested in becoming a mediator and enhancing their conflict resolution skills. Applicants who complete this BMT are eligible to apply, and their applications are favored, for New York Peace Institute’s Apprenticeship Program and joining our roster of volunteer community mediators.

During the training we explore questions like:

  • What is mediation and how does it compare to other forms of alternative dispute resolution?
  • What are the core skills I need to be an effective mediator?
  • What are the foundational values of mediation?
  • How can I identify and respond to power imbalances?
  • How can I identify and respond to different values, cultural norms, and biases?
  • What is my role as a mediator?
  • What are the best practices for online mediation?
  • What is a successful mediation?

Chris Daly Esq. will be the lead trainer and will be joined by NYPI staff and coaches.  The training will be interactive, and a variety of learning methods will be used including:

  • simulations
  • role plays
  • practice exercises
  • video clips
  • dedicated question and answer sessions

This 40-hour training is CDRC approved and also approved for the 24 hours of Initial Mediation Training by the New York State Unified Court System’s Office of ADR Programs under Part 146. Final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge, and participation in a course does not guarantee placement on a local court roster. Some courts may require additional training and experience beyond Part 146’s requirements. Acceptance on court rosters may depend on a court’s need for mediators at any given time and may include a particular court’s need for mediators with specific case-type training or experience.

This in-person BMT will cost $1,625 per person for the full 5-day training. Scholarships are available. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is April 4th, 2022, by no later than 5:00 pm ET.

Covid Protocols: Participants must submit evidence that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, having received the full course of the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson vaccines. Participants must also wear masks when in close proximity to other participants during the training.

 

The tented outdoor facilities at Wave Hill provide an opportunity to be safe and socially distanced while still providing- group discussions, hands-on exercises, and giving participants a chance to practice new skills with support and feedback from experienced mediators and trainers- all of which makes New York Peace Institute’s BMT so special.
