Description
MLS Only: This course is a 40-hour court-approved mediation training. Students who complete this course will have met the educational requirement to be listed on the Utah court’s basic mediation roster. The ability to resolve conflict is a highly valued professional asset, a means to foster personal relationships, and a life skill that promotes a more peaceful and productive way of living. This course trains students in all of the basic skills and process knowledge to conduct successful mediations as the mediator. The class is a mix of synchronous Zoom meetings and asynchronous content. Successful conflict resolution requires an exceptionally high level of competence in communication and process skills. To develop those skills, students should expect to participate in role-plays, simulations, and other exercises that practice live skills in nearly every class session. Each student will receive feedback and personal coaching.
