The Mediation Workshop is a 52 hour intensive workshop taught over 7 days taught by a team of lecturers and practitioners through the Bosserman Center for Conflict Resolution at Salisbury University in Maryland.
The Mediation Workshop examines the core concepts and principles of mediation as it applies to cases ranging from the interpersonal to international levels of engagement. The course examines a variety of approaches or styles of mediation including, but not limited to, facilitative, evaluative, transformative, narrative and eclectic.
Large portions of the course are reserved for small group role-plays and other experiential learning exercises that allow students the opportunity to explore and experiment with key mediation skills, techniques and tactics.
Graduates of this course receive a certificate of completion in International Mediation from Tel Aviv University and the Bosserman Center for Conflict Resolution. The Bosserman Center is certified by UNITAR, the United Nations Institute for Training and Research.
