    An ADRIA Event

    This three-session role-play practice package is for those that wish to practice their mediation skills in role-play.

    Participants will be placed in groups of three or four and assigned role-plays in which they will be either the mediator, one of the parties or in the case of groups of four, an observer.

    The schedule for the three-sessions will be assigned in advance and emailed to the participants. For each group there will be two role-plays per session and over the course of the three sessions, each participant will have the opportunity to mediate at least twice. (Exact number will vary depending on the number of participants that register and some role-plays may be co-mediations.)

    Each group will have a coach that will provide feedback on skill integration. The coaches will not be doing skill drills, or completing role-play evaluation forms.

    The focus on these sessions is role-play practice with verbal feedback from the coaches. Participants are welcome to record their role-play (when they are the mediator) however recording devices will not be provided by ADRIA.

    An ADRIA Professional Development Event 


    Restoring the Workplace After a Inconclusive  Harassment Investigation

    Positive relationships with others at work are an essential part of one’s job and career.  When there is a rupture in work relationships – such as those caused by a harassment investigation – “Employee-Centered Resolution” processes can be used to supportively coach employees to regain their footing after conflict.

    Employee-Centered Resolution may help employees present their views, think about what they are saying, what is being said by the other, and to make their own decisions on how to understand the situation and their options.  Employee Centered Resolution processes can also become an integral step in reengaging and reintegrating employees after a harassment investigation.

    LEARNING OBJECTIVES

    Through lecture, case study discussions, role-plays, and individual exercises, participants in this session will:

    • Be able to compare and contrast the problem-solving mediation approach to that of the “Employee-Centered Resolution” process
    • Practice interventions associated with the “Employee-Centered Resolution” process
    • Learn skills needed to follow the parties lead, amplify conversations, and allow the parties to decide
    • Learn about the link between workplace- strained relationships and psychological distress
    • Appreciate that bystanders and witnesses are vulnerable to negative responses and even illness when working in a context where there are abusive or perceived abusive interactions

    BACKGROUND

    Employee-Centered Resolution processes are based in self-determination theory (SDT) – a framework that reasons how an individual’s psychological needs for autonomy, competence, and relatedness – correlates positively to job satisfaction, better health and increased productivity (Gomez-Baya & Lucia-Casademunt, 2018).  It also highlights the importance of work relations that are friendly and supportive.

    Strained relations are inconsistent with productive work, and they also impact employee feelings toward other co-workers and the organization as a whole. Extreme examples of strained workplace relationships  often include allegations of abusive interactions such as harassment, yelling and bullying, as well as physical and sexual advances (Trépanier, Fernet & Austin, 2013). Those who target other employees, employees on the receiving end, or who perceive they are being treated poorly experience poor workplace health. The repercussions for the employees involved, as well as the organization, are significant and include lost time, decreased productivity, and employee turnover (Leiter, Frizzell, Harvie, & Churchill, 2001).

    WHO SHOULD ATTEND THIS TRAINING:

    • Mediators
    • HR professionals, Managers, Directors
    • Organizational (OD) consultants
    • EAP Personnel
    • Trainers
    • Counsellors
