    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 and assigned role-plays in which they will be either the mediator, or one of the parties. 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 twice.

    Registration is open to ADRIA members that have completed mediation training. Participants are expected to attend all three sessions.

    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.
