Advanced Mediation Skills

Advanced Mediation Skills with Dr. Mike Talbot allows you to take a step back from your mediation practice, network with other practitioners, boost your skills and understanding, and learn from a master mediator.

The day will provide you with the theory, practice, feedback, and confidence that you need to take your mediation skills to the next level.


By the end of this day, you should have had an opportunity to:
  • Reflect on aspects of your practice
  • Brush up on some key and advanced skills
  • Consider alternative ways to run mediation sessions
  • Get feedback and expert input on some of your casework
  • What is a ‘good outcome’ in mediation?
  • The place of apology: it’s not all about the ‘S’ word
  • Expanding your practice: reaching further with different mediation models: narrative, transformative, facilitative
  • Balancing support and challenge: deciding how far to go
  • When mediation fails: what happened?
  • Advanced re-framing: getting to the heart of the matter
  • Making a difference: what we actually bring to the table as mediators
This course is active and experiential, and uses case studies, role-plays, exercises, and material brought along by course delegates. Trainer input, demonstration, and DVD material are interspersed with discussions of real mediation cases. In-house delivery If you have a group of at least six people in your organisation or service who would benefit from undertaking ‘Advanced Mediation Skills’, we can come to you on a date of your choosing, and deliver the course in a manner that exactly reflects your particular subject area. Get in touch and we would be happy to organise this for you.
This course is specifically designed for qualified mediators with some case experience. You can, if you wish, bring one or two mediation cases to discuss in an anonymised manner. The day will revolve around feedback, reflective practice, and relating theory to practical skills. Evaluative case settlement techniques are NOT part of this course. However, law-oriented evaluative commercial practitioners are welcome to attend and will learn more about repairing relationships and working on the interpersonal dimension of conflict.
