High Conflict Mediation – Online, January/ February 2023

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.
