Event Description

August 17, 18, 23-25, 2013.

This 40-hour intensive training is designed to teach the skills needed to become a facilitative mediator. This training model uses the interest-based approach common in community dispute resolution. You will learn to be a neutral third party, manage highly charged negotiations, and empower clients to find solutions that meet everyone's needs.


The facilitative mediation model will give you the foundation needed to handle conflicts between neighbors, employers-employees, merchants-consumers, landlords-tenants, and a variety of interpersonal conflicts.


This training meets the classroom requirement for certification through the Washington Mediation Association. Additional specialized training may be required for some types of conflicts.


Mediation students who complete the classroom training are eligible to apply for the DRC mentored practicum. Ask about an application.
