Make a difference - as a Mediator working with Families
Would you like to learn the skills of Mediation? Would you like to make a difference?
A trained mediator is able to offer alternatives to those in conflict and assist them in finding agreement instead of reverting to a Court process or more destructive techniques. Family Mediation NI (FMNI) will deliver a further Family Mediation Foundation Training course in Northern Ireland, commencing in September 2012. This course is approved by The College of Mediators (UK) plus the pending approval of the Mediators’ Institute of Ireland and ensures reciprocity across Ireland. It also complies with the European Union Directive on mediation. This course is provided by FMNI’s own team of experienced trainers.
The Mediator is an independent person who facilitates alternatives to conflict whilst remaining impartial and non-judgemental. As a service provider, FMNI specialises in Family Mediation and in particular mediation between couples who are separating or divorcing.
Due to the complex nature of conflict and the very real impact this has on people’s lives, the Mediator needs to have the requisite knowledge, skills, experience and self-awareness.
The 2012 programme will be delivered in Belfast and will consist of 12 days of intensive training and approximately 20 hours of reading and preparation.
