Mediation Skills and Theory
This course enables students to develop and practice essential skills required in mediation. Students will explore the skills required for effective and successful mediation, including communication, negotiation and dispute resolution skills. Mediation processes will be explored to enable students to gain an understanding of the roles of the various parties in a mediation, and of the strategies that can be employed during a mediation. Students will participate in scenarios which assess their mediation skills and demonstrate how to address conflict through mediation, and also allow the students to critically analyse scenarios to determine how resolution through mediation could be achieved. Working with a mediation model, students will learn alternative approaches to deal with varying circumstances and will also investigate theoretical issues and relevant empirical studies in mediation ethics, inter-cultural context, contingent 3rd party interventions, power and empowerment, as well as other topics.
This interactive workshop has been developed to assist students to meet part of the National Mediation Accreditation Standard (NMAS) requirements.
