Our 5 day plus 2 days course exceeds the requirements of National Mediation Standards (NMS) to ensure high levels of learning. The interMEDIATE Dispute Management model will provide you with skills from first enquiry through to agreement writing. Shockingly, most other mediation training courses in Australia don’t cover enquiries, Initial Assessments, which are key to the success of any mediation, or even agreement writing. How do they expect you to succeed without these basic fundamentals?

interMEDIATE Dispute Management has a unique model of mediation which combines the facilitative model, which encourages even handed, meaningful and respectful dialogue, with the transformative model (Bush & Folger) which helps each party appreciate the dispute from the other’s perspective, encouraging acknowledgement of their point of view, and apologies – these are incredibly powerful.

Uniquely, the interMEDIATE Dispute Management model then adds a really helpful educational component.

The educational component of the interMEDIATE model recognises when parties are not able to communicate respectfully, asks permission of the parties to show them how to use highly effective communication skills, and understand the dynamics of their relationship. We provide them with the most appropriate and effective skills to assist them during the mediation and beyond.

To ensure the very best learning opportunity for you, student/trainer ration is 3:1 during roleplays.
