Focus area: CONFLICT RESOLUTION

Introduction to Mediation

This two-day interactive course is for those wanting to understand what mediation is and to develop mediation skills. It enables participants to understand their own approach to conflict, and the role of emotions in conflict.

It offers a psychological approach to resolving conflict and enables participants to develop their skills in ‘tuning in’ (the early phase of the process aimed at understanding the issues, values, and behaviours of the parties) through to the ‘tuning out’ stage (including the drawing up of the agreement)

The course is a mix of theoretical interactive input and opportunities for experiential learning, using case examples and role play.

This day provides a creative way of finding out about the process from pre-mediation through to the settlement agreement.

We provide this unique CPD opportunity for mediators to further develop their skills in ‘tuning in’ (the early phase of the process aimed at understanding the issues, values and behaviours of the parties) through to the ‘tuning out’ stage (including the drawing up of the agreement)

The day is primarily experiential in its delivery method, using case example and role play.

Introduction to Restorative Justice

This course provides an introduction to Restorative Practice and allows participants to practice the skills required.

Restorative justice brings those harmed by crime or conflict and those responsible for the harm into communication, enabling everyone affected

by a particular incident to play a part in repairing the harm and finding a positive way forward. This is part of a wider field called restorative practice. Restorative practice can be used anywhere to prevent conflict, build relationships and repair harm by

enabling people to communicate effectively and positively. Restorative practice is increasingly being used in schools, children’s services, workplaces, hospitals, communities and the criminal justice system.

Restorative practice can involve both a proactive approach to preventing harm and conflict and activities that repair harm where conflicts have already arisen. Where the latter is required, a facilitated restorative meeting can be held. This enables individuals and groups to work together to improve their mutual understanding of an issue and jointly reach the best available solution. But in many cases a less formal approach, based on restorative principles, may be more appropriate.

Restorative practice supports people to recognise that all their activities affect others, and that people are responsible

for their choices and actions and can be held accountable for them. It enables people to reflect on how they interact with each other and consider how best to prevent harm and conflict.

The course is open to all.

Use of mediation and restorative justice in schools

This course provides an introduction to the use of Mediation and Restorative Practice with young people in the schools and communities where these approaches are used where a pupil feels harmed by another person.

This could be verbally or psychologically and could be in relation to any member of the school community, pupil, teacher or support staff.

It can be used to prevent the escalation of conflict, rebuild relationships and repair harm by enabling people to communicate effectively and positively. Restorative practice is increasingly being used in schools, children’s services, workplaces, hospitals, communities and the criminal justice system.

Where the latter is required, a facilitated restorative meeting can be held. This enables individuals and groups to work together to improve their mutual understanding of an issue and jointly reach the best available solution. But in many cases a less formal approach, based on restorative principles, may be more appropriate.

Restorative practice supports people to recognise that all of their activities affect others, and that people are responsible for their choices and actions and can be held accountable for them. It enables people to reflect on how they interact with each other and consider how best to prevent harm and conflict.

Special ethical consideration needs to be considered in training young people to use these methods and to ensure they have adequate back up and support.
