TPN 1 - Becoming A Third-Party Neutral

Through role-plays and conflict scenarios participants are introduced to values and beliefs and how they impact on conflict; an introduction to negotiation, conciliation and mediation processes and techniques, including guidelines for mediators, the mediation process and process checklists; and an introduction to facilitation which includes basic group dynamics, positive framing of issues and core skills of a facilitator. The workshop also includes skill practice around questioning techniques and the positive framing of conflictual issues.
