Three Days (21 Credit Hours)
This course is specifically designed for those individuals in the field of mediation who desire to mediate and work with multiple parties seeking to resolve complex, multi-stakeholder issues. The course examines the issues, challenges and techniques required to mediate conflicts involving 3 to 100 stakeholder groups. It builds on and expands the basic two party mediation framework by examining the circumstances within which these disputes evolve and identifies the unique tools and techniques required to successfully mediate these disputes.
The course will be of particular interest to those involved in policy development, creating multiparty partnerships, local community issues, as well as corporate and government representatives who are faced with bringing disparate parties together to work on a common task.
Bill Diepeveen has over 25 years experience in mediating and facilitating highly complex, and often politically charged, disputes.
