Collaborative Mediation Skills Intensive

Posted on August 1, 2023

Thursday 21st Sept – Sat 23rd Sept

About this training:

In this 3-day experiential training, you will develop the essential techniques, skills, and philosophical approach to confidently enter, navigate, and resolve both minor and major disputes. You will be able to apply these immediately to support families, couples, community groups, and any other parties with opposing perspectives.

This training draws from the internationally renowned principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and from Toni’s 12 years of experience providing mediation for couples, families and other groups with differing perspectives and interests.

This training will support you to…

  • Develop a foundational framework to support consistent and effective conflict resolution and mediation skills.
  • Understand the dynamics and organic process of mediation and conflict resolution.
  • Develop confidence and ease within conflict resolution

Previous participants Feedback:

Needs were met for connection and practical experience in mediation.

I now have a great sense of how to use new skills in my counselling practice.

Needs met for fun, growth, and comfort, ease and understanding and the facilitator knew her subject well.

My need to learn the finer details of mediation were met.

The facilitator was kind, patient and honest.

My needs to gain confidence and self-reflection were met.

I loved the practice; it gave me the time to experience the confusion and work through it in a safe place.

Thanks Toni, I really enjoyed learning with you. I appreciated your calm manner, your anecdotes from your work and your modelling of how to mediate and keep things progressing. Also, your discussion of boundaries regarding how a mediation can end before it starts and how to interrupt clearly and purposefully.

 I liked the relaxed, informal, and safe atmosphere.
