UPEI Professional Development Program
The practice of mediation continues to grow across Canada and is becoming a highly professional and specialized field.
Mediation is now used on a regular basis to resolve conflicts related to the workplace, divorce, custody, property and insurance claims, civil matters, environmental and land use issues, and this list goes on.
This interactive, experiential 3-day course focuses on the 6-step process of interest-based mediation and builds on the communication, active listening and problem-solving skills taught in the prerequisite course – Essentials of Conflict Resolution. Participants will learn how to assess, screen and prepare cases for mediation and will be introduced to techniques for dealing with strong emotions and resistance.
