Mediation Institute Training Update: August 2021

Final FGC Workshop for 2020

Message from Joanne,

I hope that everyone is coping with whatever level of uncertainty you are dealing with where you are in Australia.  Certainty is a basic human need and when you don’t have enough certainty in your life you are more prone to anxiety. Remember to create whatever routines and certainty you can with whatever it is you have control over.  

The National Mediation Conference planning committee has had to abandon their plans for Alice Springs and will now also be running their conference fully online.  You can find the link to the registration here – National Mediation Conference 2021 

 The next Family Group Conference Facilitator training  workshops are scheduled for October 2021. If you would like to become certified as a Family Group Conference Facilitator the course is available fully online.   Mediation Institute provides training in Family Group Conference Facilitation
