Conflict resolution in public sector

Toby Treem Guerin and Stephanie Blondell Mediator Skills and Drills is a highly interactive skills-based course designed to enhance the tool kit of the public or private sector mediator. The trainers, who are clinicians and public sector mediators, have trained thousands of mediators and believe in the educational value of improvisation, drills and repetition to hone skills.

The trainers bring a lens of nuance and sophistication to examine the decisions we make as mediators in our interventions and their impact on the participants and process.

This course focuses on skills to address high-conflict personalities and intense emotions, self-represented parties unaccustomed to distributive negotiations, and outside interests of representatives including unions and enforcement agencies.

The workshop also addresses issues of authority and agency, as well as the impasses of inertia the wait for a new administration or policy, budget cycle, or collective bargaining agreementcommon in conflicts involving public entities. The trainers bring their extensive public sector experiences to integrate common ethical challenges and maximize outcomes in mediations.

Designed to bridge the gap between the orthodox mediation models taught theory and the realities of mediation practicethis intensive will expand the mediator's skill set. This course presents the information most relevant to public sector mediators via drills and role-plays.

While examples in this course are largely from public sector mediation, the skills are transferable to mediators from both public and private sectors.
