Join us for a comprehensive 30-Hour Mediation Training that covers the basic theory and skills of mediation in a dynamic and engaging learning environment.

Participants will be introduced to the theoretical grounding underlying effective conflict interventions as well as the practical skills and techniques necessary to assist parties in conflict. Participants will learn to de-escalate negative and unproductive conflict interactions while assisting both parties and their lawyers to engage in productive dialogue, interest-based negotiation and effective decision-making.

This training will address the role of law and lawyers in mediation and will prepare participants to mediate in both court-referred and private contexts.

After completing this training, participants will be eligible to participate in Stalder Mediation’s advanced mediation trainings and continuing education programs.


What Participants are Saying About Our Trainings:

“I loved this training. You covered so much in a short period of time and I really feel like I came away with a solid understanding of the mediation practice.”

“This is an amazing class for those who are seeking to become mediators as it teaches a very logical and effective methodology. However, anyone can benefit from taking this course because it teaches communication skills and how to interact with other people on a daily basis – in essence, how to become a better human being.”

“This mediation program challenged the preconceptions and intellect of everyone who attended. Countless ‘ah ha’ moments were witnessed as students learned about themselves, as much as the ‘process’ of mediation. My tuition, travel and hotel costs were only a fraction of the value I received.”

“I highly recommend this training for any attorney — whether you are interested in mediation or not. The communication skills I learned have made me a more effective fact gatherer from my clients, a more effective negotiator with my adversaries and a more effective advocate before tribunals of every kind.”
