For Whom? 

The mediation training will be offered in English for a professional use of mediation. The course is designed for people with frequent conflict interation at work and for people who like to deepen their understand of conflict dynamic and would like to try new ways of coping with it. 

The mediation training is is multiprofessional and aimed at people from all conflict areas, whose work always focuses on conflict management and conflict prevention. However, the course is also intended for those who want to embark on new ways of dealing with conflicts both in everyday life as well as in their partnership and family.

The fields of application of mediation competence are different: i.e. mediate crisis in human communication, conflict prevention for differences in ethnicity, culture, age, gender, faith, etc., for leadership and management in full-time and voluntary structures, for personnel and organizational development and project management.

You work in the legal or social field, in the administration or in a social institution, as a teacher or responsible for the staff in the company, company instructor or police officer? Or are you still studying? Then you are in the right place!


Structure and Content

Whether you want to apply mediation professionally or acquire mediation competence as an adjunct to your professional activity: this training series will meet both objectives equally with its modular structure.

As a basis in the seminar serves the Tansformative Mediation as newly emerging flow from the USA and also the classic and widely used probelm-solving model of mediation (Facilitative Mediation). Skills are acquired to professionally accompany conflict mediation skills, increase mediative attitudes and promote creativity. Your reflectivity, imagination and empathy are strengthened. Taking into account the preferred working method of each participant, you will also be given the opportunity to develop a personal and distinctive style from your already learned and acquired skills. This is made possible by the high attention to self-reflection and self-determination.

Last but not least, the ability to carry out educational events on topics of constructive conflict management should also be conveyed - as a contribution to the development of a positive culture of debate in the society.
