MED_SKIL 100-0 : Mediation Skills Training


Description

This intensive synchronous program provides students with the hands-on opportunity to engage in mediations and acquire the skills used to assist parties with divergent interests to reach a resolution. Through extensive simulations in which students will have the opportunity to be both the mediator and a party in a dispute, students will learn how third-party intervention can resolve conflict in a wide variety of settings, from workplace and commercial to interpersonal and community disputes. A significant focus of the program will be the use of mediation role play exercises in which students will be observed and coached by professional mediators. The course is facilitated by well-respected mediation trainers in the field. Northwestern University is a member of the National Mediation Training Registry.
