Refresh Your Mediation Skills – follow on workshop
November 13 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm| £50.00
Want more practice at mediation?
This workshop is designed for people who have previously completed a Bridge Builders mediation training course. If opportunities to mediate do not come frequently enough to keep you familiar with the process, this is a chance to build your confidence.
Build on the foundation
The Bridge Builders course Mediating Interpersonal Conflicts teaches a mediation process that can be seen as a basic recipe. It’s best to practise it as it stands, at first.
Experience is the key. The best way of learning how to use the process effectively is to keep using it, and to watch others using it. That’s why the main training tool for this workshop is role-play – it provides a safe space to practice skills. You face a unique scenario, but the shape of the process remains the same.
Book for this workshop if you’re already convinced that mediation can make a valuable difference in the life of the church and other settings, and you want to renew your determination to be part of the difference.
Maybe you’ll see how you can vary the recipe a bit …..
