About Mediation Training 

Join us for this highly interactive three-day (civil mediation) or five-day (civil and family mediation) training. The first three days of the training (Oct. 25-27) train you to conduct civil mediations, and if you participate in the full five days (Oct. 25-29), you wil be trained to conduct family mediations as well, including divorce and child custody mediations. 

Participants develop their mediation skills through role plays and interactive exercises, and receive extensive one-on-one coaching and written evaluations of their skill development from coaches with a wide range of experience in a variety of types of civil and family mediation. 

The training covers a variety of topics, including:
