Course Information

Mediation is a powerful method of dispute resolution that can help you reach the root cause of conflict. Mediation is so successful because the mediator remains neutral and ensures that both parties are heard. This process helps disputing individuals reach their own conclusions and agree to a lasting solution

With personal, professional, and managerial applications, mediation is rapidly gaining popularity as an effective form of conflict resolution. If you want to learn mediation tactics or become a professional mediator, Mediation Certification is the perfect place to start. You'll learn by observing real-life mediations and co-mediating disputes with experienced instructor and professional mediator, Anne Lightsey.
