Our 5-day Basic Mediation Training lays the groundwork for anyone interested in becoming a mediator, in enhancing their conflict resolution skills, or in working to become a volunteer mediator with our Institute. During the training we explore questions like: What is mediation and how does it compare to other forms of alternative dispute resolution? What are the core skills I need to be an effective mediator? What are the foundational values of mediation? What is my role as a mediator? What makes a successful mediation? Through group discussion, hands-on exercises, lecture, and role-play, you’ll have the chance to engage with these and other critical questions, and practice new skills with support and feedback from experienced mediators and trainers.
What Sets Us Apart
Our BMT isn’t your typical training: pop culture, drawing, movement, discussion and role-play are central features of our training. We’re in the business of developing professional mediators and we structure our program to ensure that our trainees have lots of time to practice the skills they’re learning, to ask questions, and to wrestle challenging concepts to the ground. We limit our trainings to 28 participants to maximize the amount of interaction our trainers have with participants and to facilitate exchange and learning between attendees.
Part 146 Approved
Our Basic Mediation Training is approved under Part 146 by the New York State Unified Court System’s Office of ADR Programs. Please note that final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge and participation in a course that is either approved or pending approval does not guarantee placement on a local court roster.
Who Is This For?
We’ve trained everyone from UN negotiators to the NYPD, from community leaders and department supervisors to NASA. Our training teaches vital communication and mediation skills applicable across professional fields.
Our 5-Day, 40 hour training is available for $1625.
