Refreshing Your Mediation Skills: Advanced Workshop, High Leigh

November 2, 2016 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

| Free

An advanced workshop training day for people in church leadership

Wednesday 2 November 2016, High Leigh Herts 9.30am-4.30pm

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 process that can be seen as a basic recipe. It’s best to practice 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. 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 you want to renew your determination to be part of the difference.

Maybe you’ll see how you can vary the recipe a bit …..


Running from 9.30am to 4.30pm, the programme includes worship, presentation, practical experience.

Main elements of the day:

  • A refresher on basic ideas of mediation
  • Demonstration of some advanced skills
  • Participation in an extended role-play, with a demanding scenario
  • A forum for sharing experience with others, and discussing typical challenges.
