Mediation Institute Training Update: October 2021

Final FGC Workshop for 2020

Message from Joanne,

Wherever you are we hope that you and your family are doing well and hopeful of being able to reunite soon if you are separated by national or international travel restrictions or lockdowns. I know I am desperately keen to see my children and grandchildren in person and as someone based in Melbourne that is still a bit of a way off.  

Speaking of families, the next and last for the year 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 and this time we will have students from New York state and Cambodia joining us.   Find out more – Family Group Conference Facilitation

We are also working with our friends from Emverio Workplace Solutions on a professional development training on pre-mediation for workplace mediators. This course is made up of a short theory course, a webinar and skills development session.  

Congratulations to our Recent Graduates
