Professional Development Information

Wishing you and your staff a Happy New Year. 

Other events may be advertised on the Events Calendar.

New in 2021

 
We are working on new courses, programs and ways to support members.
 

Conflict Coaching – The Source Code

An exciting development that many members have been waiting for is a Conflict Coaching Course built from the ground up by Venita Dimos, Susie Rayner and Joanne Law.  
 
We’ll be releasing an opportunity for beta testers in due course. We are subtitling the course Conflict Coaching but we don’t love the term.  What we will be training you in is how to help people to de-escalate situations and prevent them escalating where possible.  Interpersonal coaching would be more accurate but don’t worry you will also be able to be certified as a Conflict Coach if you need that professionally.

Professional Development Activities in 2021

 

 

We will be running two main weekly webinars:

  • Q & A and Discussion on Tuesdays – this will replace the Monday Mediator Mentoring and Techy Tuesday and provide opportunities to members and students to attend live or request an answer by sending an email to ask@mediationinstitute.edu.au 
  • Family Dispute Resolution Tutorial and Discussion on Wednesdays – this will provide more support and focus for our FDR students and also be an opportunity for our members to stay up to date with the latest information about Family Dispute Resolution Related topics.
  • We will continue the monthly group supervision for our Family Group Conference Facilitators.

Other regular groups may arise out of the project to refine the membership directory categories on the website.
