KEROBYAN MEDIATION is pleased to offer a Basic Mediation Training entailing a minimum of 40 instructional hours, generally taught over a four-day period held on weekends.
The training is a balance of theory and practice, and focuses on a facilitative style of mediation in which the parties are generally kept in the same room and caucus is a tool within the process. Trainers use diverse teaching methods including classroom-style presentations, demonstration role plays, videos, active learning exercises, and outside readings. The training addresses specific California statutes and California’s ethical standards for mediators. During training, there are several opportunities to role play simulated mediation sessions.
