POSTPONED Training: Basic Mediation – Calgary – October 2020

Posted on: January 22nd, 2020

AFMS regrets having to postpone this in-person training. We are working on delivery of an online course. Stay tuned!

October 19-23, 2020 in Calgary


This (5-day) 35-hour course will cover the basics of interest-based mediation. We'll start with understanding what conflict is, its impacts, and the different resolution processes available. We'll explore basic self-awareness and our own contributions to conflicts and discover what our strengths are and what our weaknesses may be.

We will visit the interest-based model of negotiation and experience some of emotional self-management techniques that make for an effective mediator. This will naturally lead us into an introduction to basic interest-based mediation and practice of the appropriate skills, which are necessary and helpful to achieve the best chances for resolution. We will learn the qualities of a good mediator, which includes Mediators' Codes of Ethics.

All family mediators, elder mediators or child consultants registered with AFMS need a 35-hour Basic Mediation course that covers:
