Training Update: April 2021
Final FGC Workshop for 2020
Message from Joanne,
First financial quarter over and only a few days till the Easter Long Weekend. I don’t know about you but for me 2021 has really flown by.
A lot of the special government support and special provisions put in place for COVID have now been phased out without the guarantee that shutdowns are behind us. As the “zombie” businesses work out whether they are shutting down and the rest continue to restructure many families are going to be under strain with financial and other pressures. Our role of mediator is really starting to be recognised as important and hopefully will continue to grow in prominence over time.
Scroll down for the updates on our latest graduates and students. If you are still stuck with your studies remember that setting goals and breaking them down into milestones is the single most effective way of overcoming procrastination and overcoming barriers in our minds to finding the time we need to complete our studies or other goals in life. https://www.mediationinstitute.edu.au/mi-setting-your-2021-learning-goals-guide/
Remember that participating as a role player is VERY valuable process as is observing while using the assessment tool to focus your attention.

What our students say
Opportunity would be to refresh the role play scenarios but I believe that is happening. Also to update the videos of the role plays, I found these to be very helpful, maybe make them shorter Also I would have liked training on the pre mediation - and I believe that is also coming soon !!! Thanks again, you are all so dedicated and passionate and that made the whole experience enjoyable
