An ADRIA Event

This three-session role-play practice package is for those that wish to practice their mediation skills in role-play. Participants will be placed in groups of three and assigned role-plays in which they will be either the mediator, or one of the parties. The schedule for the three-sessions will be assigned in advance and emailed to the participants. For each group there will be two role-plays per session and over the course of the three sessions, each participant will have the opportunity to mediate twice.

Each group will have a coach that will provide feedback on skill integration. These practice sessions are not intended to teach or give feedback on online mediation processes.

Registration is open to ADRIA members that have completed mediation training. Participants are expected to attend all three sessions.  

Letters of completion will be emailed upon request. Full attendance of all three sessions represents 7 credit hours. Letters of completion and credit hours will only be provided to those that attend all three sessions.

*In order to participate in this format, students need to be available (without distractions) for the full 2.5 hour session. In addition, you would need a strong internet connection, computer with a webcam and microphone. Instructions and role-plays will be emailed 1 week in advance.
