Mediation Practitioner is a new Career and Professional Development Program designed to deliver hands-on coaching and role-playing sessions to practicing mediators.  Whether you are currently practicing mediation, just completed your training, or just want to keep practicing, you will benefit from the structured guidance and feedback you receive from experienced professional mediators

Participants will work in small groups to progress through 2 complete disputes.  This program moves beyond basic mediation training and helps participants hone advanced mediation techniques.  While mediation training is required, the program is open to all skills levels, and coaching is based on experience level and professional goals.  Enrollment is limited, so sign up soon!
