Apprenticeship Training assists new mediators and other conflict professionals, who find it helpful to work with an experienced mediator as a coach to review case concerns, try out various intervention techniques, discuss practice issues, explore ethical dilemmas, and have Memorandum of Understanding reviewed. Coaching also allows new mediators to begin the steps needed to become an Accredited Member of the New York State Council on Divorce Mediation.

Other specialized training is available to help understand the nature of conflict, different conflict response styles, how to analyze rather than react to conflict, and techniques for intervening in conflict situations. We are always happy to tailor our trainings to meet your organization’s specific needs.
