Mediation Institute Training Update: July 2021
Final FGC Workshop for 2020
Message from Joanne,
Who knew that in a month we would have gone from Victoria in lockdown to Victoria back to masks inside and large chunks of the rest of Australia in lockdown. Fingers crossed that the lockdowns will prevent further community spread. The news is telling me that all 18 NRL football teams are now in Melbourne.
The learning from this and the impacts such as the Resolution Institute Conference going fully online and the shaky state of planning for the National Mediation Conference in Alice Springs remind us the importance of maintaining a flexible approach in regards to training, professional development and everything in between.
The next Family Group Conference Facilitator training workshops are scheduled for July 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

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
