Center for Civic Mediation
Advanced Skills Practicum

Course Description:

This highly interactive course includes extensive practice and coaching in advanced mediation skills and a minimum 10 hours of litigated case training, including lecture, role play, observation, coaching and feedback. Lecture topics include assessing the conflict, consensus building, problem-solving techniques and managing multi-party, multi-issue agendas, legal ethics, who is at the table – analysis and implications for process, and distributive and integrative bargaining, using case studies from a range of areas (e.g., personal injury, employment, contracts, real estate, property). The practice of mediation is highly focused on the interactions not only between the disputants but also between the disputants and the third-party neutral. The Advanced Skills Practicum aims to develop more advanced skill sets of the reflective practitioner as well as key elements, principles and strategies in interventions of the interactive processes in mediation. Participants practice advanced skill sets and participate heavily in role plays and other group facilitations. Combine this training with our 30-Hour Basic Mediation Training to fulfill the training requirements of most court mediation panels. 18 hours of CLE credit, including 3 hours of Ethics and 1 hour of Elimination of Bias.
