INTRODUCTION TO MEDIATION TRAINING Online videos available soon!
If you've ever wondered about becoming a mediator or taking mediation training, this free introductory session is a great opportunity to try it out. We'll cover approaches to conflict, the power of clear communication and good listening, and practice some simple steps for dealing with conflict. Whether you're interested in handling personal disagreements better or managing professional interactions more effectively, this introductory workshop is a good first step. No prerequisites, no fee - additional details will be provided once you register.
CRG MEDIATOR GATHERING/REFRESHER TRAINING June 22, 4:30-6:00 pm, online
It's been too long! We miss you, and we know many of you have missed opportunities to mediate and use your skills.
If you are already on CRG's list of roster mediators, or have recently completed Basic Mediation Training and signed up for an apprenticeship with CRG, we'd love to have you join us Tuesday, June 22, from 4:30 to 6:00 pm via Zoom for a chance to connect with each other and to refresh ourselves on mediation skills and knowledge. We'll have some fun games and skills practice opportunities, chances to talk with other mediators, and an update on mediation opportunities under the CRG umbrella and a preview of other ways to engage with CRG.
We will plan to record parts of the event, and share the recording with CRG mediators who cannot attend the actual workshop. This session is also open to anyone who has completed a Basic Mediation Training course - if you're new to CRG, please tell us a little about yourself when you register.
CRG MEDIATOR COACHED ROLEPLAY PRACTICE June 29, 4:30-6:30 pm, online
More opportunities to do mediation are emerging - are you feeling ready, would you like to play with other mediators and refresh your skills?
Join us Tuesday, June 29, 4:30-6:30 pm via Zoom for a CRG coached roleplay session. Whether you're an experienced mediator curious about how fellow mediators handle challenging dynamics, a volunteer mediator on pause because courts haven't been having sessions, or someone who has just completed Basic Mediation Training, this is a chance to "play," work on skills, receive feedback from experienced mediators, and get better at what we love to do. We'll use roleplays that match your desired areas of focus, and do our best to match you up with other appropriate folks to practice with (we'll send out questions on that to those who register, closer to training time.)*
This session is also open to non-CRG mediators who have completed a Basic Mediation Training course - if you're new to CRG, please tell us a little about yourself when you register.
ONLINE MEDIATION TRAINING July 7, 4:30-6:00 pm, online
If you have already taken Basic Mediation Training, but don't yet feel comfortable with online mediation work, or you're a CRG roster mediator but haven't yet completed our online mediation training, this is your chance!
In this interactive session, we provide an introduction to online Zoom tools mediators may need, discuss confidentiality protections, and review CRG guidelines related to online mediation work. We want you to feel comfortable and able to use Zoom tools to support mediating parties well.
Space is limited*; additional sessions may be scheduled if needed. This workshop is intended for people who have already completed a full Basic Mediation Training.
