The ADR Center approach to training mediators and mediation trainers is based on the ADR Center’s 5×5 matrix that describes the mediation process and has been successful in transferring the know-how from practitioners to new mediators
 
You’ll learn how to help others manage and resolve civil and commercial disputes as independent mediators so that you can add value and grow your practice.

By the end of this program, you’ll be able to identify barriers to negotiation, manage resolution of conflicts, design custom-made and facilitate most effective mediation processes for the parties and the dispute in place.

This course will teach you how to learn to apply the ADR Center’s 5×5 matrix so that you can design and deliver the four procedural phases of mediation – preparation, opening joint session, private sessions and closing session.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

ADR Center International Accredited Mediation Training

with international accreditation from the International Mediation Institute (IMI) for IMI Certified Training Programs

The training participants will be enrolled in ADR Center Academy, ADR Center’s state-of-the-art Learning Management System (LMS), where they will be able to access course information and start their preparation, engage ADR Center’s trainers, ask questions and clarify all the details needed for effective participation to the training activities. This stage is essential for an effective mediation training, as it includes opportunities for trainees to engage the training faculty through videoconference or asynchronous lessons. In fact, the training participants will use the ADR Center Academy to access course information throughout the entire training, as our course administrators and trainers will upload course materials there to ensure they will be accessible for all training participants.

After opening and introductions, the training participants will be engaged in a practical exercise that will challenge their assumptions related to the role of the mediator. The experience will form the foundation for the group discussion related to the mediation fundamentals, where conflict analysis techniques, alternative dispute resolution processes, principles, and stages of mediation will be discussed in detail. The training participants will be provided at the end of the first training day with the opportunity to observe and discuss a mediation demonstration. On the first training day, the participants will be presented with the core competency areas and related skills of a professional mediator.  

The training participants will learn on the second training day that the role of a mediator is to facilitate a negotiation process. Hence, the participants will learn basic negotiation knowledge, theories, and skills. Specifically, they will be able to recognize, practice, and manage two fundamentally different approaches or “mindsets” to the negotiation. The first is called the “distributive” approach to negotiation (also known as adversarial, positional, competitive, resource claiming, or “outside-in” bargaining). Distributive negotiation is what negotiators most typically experience in the marketplace when “haggling” for simple goods or services. The second approach to negotiation is called the “integrative” approach (also known as problem-solving, interest-based, collaborative, resource-creating, or “inside-out” bargaining). Integrative negotiation requires a deeper understanding of what the parties need to move forward successfully from a negotiation. To learn all these, the training participants will engage actively in practice sessions, presentations, plenary, and small group discussions.

Once a solid foundation is laid with mediation fundamentals and negotiation theories, the course participants will be taught “Preparation” and the “Fact-Finding (First Joint Meeting)” – the first two stages in the ADR Center’s 5×5 model that describes the mediation process. Each stage will be presented with detailed information for goals, activities (physical actions), and different strategies, skills and tools that can be used. Common mistakes and a custom-made “did I achieve my goals checklist” are also included for each stage presented. As ADR Center is managing more than 7000 mediations per year, our trainers are full-time practitioners and bring significant experience to the training room. For each stage, the training participants can engage in mediation simulations and build their mediation skills. This training methodology was proven to be successful in all our mediation training programs, and therefore we allocate significant durations for role-playing preparation, simulation, and debriefing to ensure that mediation knowledge is understood and mediation skills are developed.

In continuation to the previous training day, the training program will focus on the third and fourth stages of the mediation process. During these stages, the ADR Center trainers will underline why private sessions are essential in the mediation process and how they can best inform various approaches and techniques to stimulate further progress. The ADR Center’s trainers will divide the day into two – the initial (exploration) and later (negotiation) private sessions, with the same structure used on the previous day for both stages. The ADR Center will explain why the “negotiation” can be successful in achieving settlement agreements when parties are open to engaging in a meaningful “exploration” of their needs and interests. Also, the ADR Center trainers will discuss the communication and facilitation skills needed for the mediators during this important stage of the process. Then, as per the previous sessions, the course participants will have ample opportunities to role-play and practice both the initial and later private sessions to develop mediation skills.

The fifth training day will start with the fifth, closing phase of the mediation process, where training participants will discuss and practice the role of the mediator in facilitating S.M.A.R.T. agreements and ensuring a responsible exit from the mediation process. A specifically designed case study will be used to practice the related mediation skills within this fifth process stage. Further, the fifth training day will include a conversation about mediation ethics and the framework within which mediation can occur with primary and secondary legislation applicable nationwide, mediation rules applicable at the level of the mediation provider of services, and the agreement to mediate that the parties and the mediator sign. The training component related to mediation ethics is critical for the sustainable implementation of mediation because it teaches participants how to deal with various dilemmas that occur while mediating. We include here specific information related to cultural dimensions, a gender-diverse approach to mediation, and managing threats and reprisals in mediation. The fifth training day ends with a final mediation simulation of a complex case.

The training participants will be invited and will have the possibility to provide course feedback through ADR Center Academy. They will also be encouraged by the ADR Center trainers to read articles and books included in the recommended reading list. Also, depending on the context and when possible, ADR Center offers shadowing and coaching opportunities to the training participants. This “supervised practice” is a very important stage in the development of any professional. Finally, ADR Center will establish and include the course participants in a “global community of practice” to facilitate networking and the ongoing transfer of good practices.
