Monash Law Executive and Continuing Education
Mediation is an effective way of resolving disputes and is now used around Australia in most courts and tribunals.
Part A of a two-part interactive program developed to meet the National Mediation Accreditation Standards (NMAS), this workshop provides participants with essential negotiation, mediation and communication skills. It is suitable for all professionals interested in Alternative Dispute Resolution and Mediation.

Be provided with individual feedback on style and overall performance by highly qualified NMAS accredited practitioners.
Work with the mediation model
