Special emphasis will be given to the understanding of the Mediation Process and its place within the ADR (Alternative Dispute Resolution) structure. Elements of the program include the nature of conflict, facilitative method of dispute resolution, understanding values and relationships embedded within the dispute resolution process, ethical standards of practice, the role of the mediator, creating safe harbors and how to bring about mutually satisfactorily solution(s).
Eldercare and Probate Mediation training focus on Adult Guardianship and Family Caregiver Mediation. Adult Guardianship and Family Caregiver mediation are quite different from other types of mediation. We focus on inclusion of the older person’s voice in the mediation and techniques for working in multiparty family mediations. At the conclusion of the training, participants will be prepared to organize and perform Elder Mediations. Meant for both mediators and possible participants in mediation, this is an advanced training for those who have already taken basic mediation training, and an introduction to Elder Mediation for those who have not.
