About this training – 

In this 3-day experiential mediation skills training, you will develop the essential techniques, skills and philosophical approach to confidently enter, navigate and resolve both minor and major disputes. You will be able to apply these immediately to support families, couples, community groups, and any other parties with opposing perspectives.

This training draws from the internationally renowned principles of Nonviolent Communication (NVC), and from Toni’s 12 years of experience providing mediation for couples, families and other groups with differing perspectives and interests, including FDR (Family Dispute Resolution)


This training will support you to…

  • Develop a foundational framework to support consistent and effective conflict resolution and mediation skills

  • Understand the dynamics and organic process of mediation and conflict resolution.

  • Develop confidence and ease within conflict resolution
