    NEW ADRIC ONLINE COURSE

    The ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC) and The Canadian Collaborative for Engagement & Conflict Management (CECM) have united on a new, ambitious and practically-focused program in support of mediators and arbitrators offering services online.  This program has been developed by Colm Brannigan and Marc Bhalla, who each have a Master of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School in Dispute Resolution and focused their academic research on Online Dispute Resolution.  Colm and Marc have been practicing ODR long before the COVID-19 pandemic and believe that there is a great deal more to addressing conflict remotely than getting a videoconferencing account.

    This in-depth, interactive program will highlight what is unique about addressing conflict online.  In its practical focus, attendees will be walked through online mediation and arbitration processes, from engagement to conflict closure.  Unique challenges and opportunities will be discussed and creative ways to make use of various technologies to enhance the process demonstrated.

    Whether this is your first foray into the world of ODR or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique 10-hour program.  The program will be presented through an introduction and 3 modules.  For more information click the link below:

    Therapeutic Jurisprudence: A Problem Solving Approach to Decision Making

    Lunch and Learn

    October 6, 2020

    For the past decades, Canadian Courts have been introducing Therapeutic Justice or what is also known as a Problem Solving Approach to certain cases before the Courts, in order to address their root problem.  For example, mental health and drug addictions in criminal matters and domestic abuse in family matters.

    This presentation will look at what is a Problem Solving Approach to Decision Making and how it can be adapted to Administrative Tribunal decision making. Consider practical suggestions and guidelines for incorporating Problem Solving initiatives as part of a Decision Making process and review the characteristics and interpersonal skills of a Problem Solving Decision Maker.

    Presenter:

    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).

    NEW ADRIC ONLINE COURSE

    The ADR Institute of Canada (ADRIC) and The Canadian Collaborative for Engagement & Conflict Management (CECM) have united on a new, ambitious and practically-focused program in support of mediators and arbitrators offering services online.  This program has been developed by Colm Brannigan and Marc Bhalla, who each have a Master of Laws from Osgoode Hall Law School in Dispute Resolution and focused their academic research on Online Dispute Resolution.  Colm and Marc have been practicing ODR long before the COVID-19 pandemic and believe that there is a great deal more to addressing conflict remotely than getting a videoconferencing account.

    This in-depth, interactive program will highlight what is unique about addressing conflict online.  In its practical focus, attendees will be walked through online mediation and arbitration processes, from engagement to conflict closure.  Unique challenges and opportunities will be discussed and creative ways to make use of various technologies to enhance the process demonstrated.

    Whether this is your first foray into the world of ODR or you are well versed in it, you will be able to enhance your practice by taking this unique 10-hour program.  The program will be presented through an introduction and 3 modules.  For more information click the link below:

    The potential for conflict is everywhere, and escalation and high conflict behaviours are almost unavoidable for many professionals working in conflict resolution. Mediators, and allied professionals, working with parties involved in potentially high conflict mediations need to understand and manage complexity, emotional intensity, and challenges that may arise during a mediation.

    Using a trauma informed practice perspective, this course prepares mediators to manage aspects of high conflict mediations, including safety screening, dealing with parties experiencing poor mental health, addictions and substance use issues, strong emotions, and challenging behaviours associated with personality disorders.   Mediators will be equipped with the tools to determine whether to proceed and, if so, to mediate what can be high conflict discussions.

    Conflict management coaching, also known as conflict coaching, is a specialized niche in the field of coaching and conflict management.  It is a one-on-one technique, in which a trained coach assists people to effectively manage specific disputes or prevent unnecessary ones. Conflict management coaching also helps clients to strengthen their competence to more effectively engage in conflict.

    This specialized coaching process has wide application in organizational, family and other contexts - for coaching people to independently manage their disputes, to more effectively engage in challenging communications, and to participate with more confidence in mediation or other ADR processes.

    The outcomes of this workshop are that participants will gain:

    • the theory, principles and methods specific to the CINERGY® model of conflict management coaching;
    • an introduction to and basic working knowledge of conflict management coaching using the CINERGY® model;
    • an understanding of the types of skills required to provide conflict management coaching;
    • experience of the coaching model as a coach, ‘client’ and observer;
    • knowledge of the applications of this technique; and
    • suggested documents and information about the logistics of conflict management coaching.
