We are already halfway through January 2018 and FairField Center still has three amazing training courses available this month! Whether you are looking to expand your personal or professional skill set or continue working towards becoming a certified mediator, these classes have what you need. All the classes are taught by trained mediators and certified by the Office of the Executive Secretary of the Supreme Court of Virginia.
Basic Mediation Training (January 22 – 24) is an experiential training in the basic principles of negotiation and conflict resolution, the mediation process, communication skills and issues faced by mediators. Instructors will use role plays and practice activities applicable to real life situation and General District Court level cases.
Family Mediation Training (January 24 – 26) is designed for people who have completed a basic mediation training course and want to expand their skills and practice to include separation cases involving parenting issues such as custody, visitation and child support at the JDR court level. Instructors use role plays, case examples and ethical dilemmas to further participants understanding and build skills levels.
Circuit Court Civil Mediation Training (January 29 – 31) is an advanced workshop emphasizing the more complex civil disputes and issues at the Circuit Court level which involve working with attorneys, resource people and multiple disputing parties. This workshop will focus on negotiation skills, advanced strategies and techniques, planning/preparation of and agreement writing.
