Mediation Skills Training

Individuals with mediation skills provide a process to help parties better understand each other’s perspective and reach a mutually agreeable resolution. The principles of mediation are covered during this interactive forty hour course. You will learn the facilitative mediation process, develop active listening skills, and practice effective questioning techniques. Ethical standards in mediation and strategies to work through impasse situations will be introduced, as will methods to differentiate between position and interest, identify sources of conflict, and write agreements. Following classroom training, an in-depth practicum will include a minimum of three observations, four co-mediations, and two solo mediations. The practicum will allow you to practice your skills and gain confidence in your ability to mediate conflict and facilitate difficult conversations.

This class is eligible for 31.5 CLEs (30 general and 1.5 ethics) through the Nevada Board of Continuing Legal Education for attorneys and judges.
