Martin works with several organizations to provide quality Mediation Skills Training. Martin is Director of the National Center for Mediation Education and Co-Director of the National Institute for Conflict Resolution. Martin can present Basic and Family (Separation/Divorce) Mediation Skills Training alone,or in concert with several other well known mediator trainers in Maryland (John Spiegel, Esq., Trish Miller, Esq., Paul Nathan, Esq., Kate Palmisano, MSW) or as lead trainer with your organizational staff.
This is a 40 hour program which covers mediation principles, process, procedures, models of mediation, tools and techniques, psychological considerations, and local law. We also cover screening cases, ethics, standards, and writing of Memoranda of Understanding.
The format of the program is: discussion of an issue and role play practice by trainees (learn about it, see it, do it). Group size ranges from 10 - 25 and training can be accomplished in 4 day or 5 day blocks of time or over several blocks of time. [Typical syllabus]
The training currently meets the standards set by the Circuit Courts of Maryland (Rule 17-101 -107) and can be adapted to meet the needs and standards of most other states.
