Basic Mediation Training

November 4, 2017 @ 9:00 am - November 12, 2017 @ 3:30 pm

- $299.00

Week 1: Explore the underlying basis of conflict. Discover your conflict style and how you interact with other styles. Gain a better understanding of effective communication and listening skills, and the obstacles when these break down. Learn the art of questioning and how it is used differently during a mediation session.  Delve into each stage of the mediation process to understand the goals and objectives of each stage. Learn what your mediator role is at each of these stages.

Week 2: Practice what it’s like to be a mediator through role-play exercises. Experience how each party feels during conflict as you take on different roles and better understand the methods you learned in the previous two weeks, and utilize them.  Review the ethical standards for mediators and the issues they may face before, during, and after a session. Learn about job opportunities available to you, not only in the mediation field, but also in jobs that incorporate mediation skills in their hiring requirements.

Color Coding

All community events are shown on the calendar in blue, while all events that are for SCMA members only are shown on the calendar in yellow. This lets people see at a glance what type of event they are able to attend.

Narrow Your Results

At the top of the page there is a section that says “Narrow Your Results”.  This area has drop down menus with checkboxes next to each item. Go through each menu section and click any or all of the items that match what type of event you’re looking for. Then click the button that says “Submit” to view your filtered results on the calendar below.

Change Calendar View

On the top right side of the calendar there are two fields – one says ‘Events In” and has a field where you can select which month to view. Next to that is a field that says “View As”. The default setting is “month”, so you can view the events like a regular calendar. If you prefer, though, you can opt to view the events in a list instead. Or, click “map” to view a map that highlights where each event is located. Finally, you can view as “photo” to see all a list of the event titles and their associated images.
