OVERVIEW Community Boards’ nationally recognized The Basics of Mediation introduces core conflict resolution skills in a training designed for managers, human resource professionals, attorneys, ombudsmen, social workers, community mediators and others who intervene in disputes as part of their work.
Basics is a 40-hour training, taking place over two consecutive weekends, Saturdays and Sundays, January 17-18 & January 24-25, from 9:00 am to 6:30 pm. There are also two additional 2-hour learning modules that will be assigned.
Participants gain the knowledge, techniques and skills needed to handle a broad range of disputes. This training is required for those wishing to become volunteer Community Mediators for our Neighborhood Mediation Program. While California has no statewide certification process for mediators, Basics meets the minimum requirements for most court mediation programs. Upon completion, participants receive certificates of completion.
Basics training topics include:
Effective communication and active listening skills
Stages of mediated problem solving
Managing a negotiation
Cultural and gender issues in mediation
Dealing with strong emotions
Drafting agreements that work
