Continuing Professional Development

The purpose of CPD is to ensure that Mediators keep their knowledge and skills up to date for the benefit of users of their service and for their own personal and professional development. CPD has an underlying ethical premise that asserts that clients have a right to expect competent and skilled practitioners. Thus every Mediator has a responsibility to maintain and develop knowledge and skills, and alongside the individual responsibility, lies the professional Institute's obligation to provide the means whereby this can happen.Most professional bodies acknowledge that CPD is a commitment to lifelong learning with an emphasis on 'home skills', thus for the MII, the emphasis is on mediation skills.The MII requires that all practising Members complete a minimum of CPD hours and has agreed a CPD points system.

CPD for mediating with Separating Couples. 

32 hours Separating Couples training is mandatory for members who wish to be certified to mediate with Separating Couples. Modules are delivered in the areas of Couple Dynamics, Domestic abuse and screening,  Family Law Matters, Family Mediation Process, Parenting and  Child protection issues. :(Full Details for each of the modules)

Conflict Management Coaching Training

Learn How to Shift Emotional Blocks and Help Your Clients Resolve Their Conflicts

You have been asked to sort out an issue between Rita and Brian.
They haven’t been getting along at work for a while.

You meet them for initial one-to-ones to get some background and prepare them to sit down and talk it out.

But they seem a lot more dug-in than you had expected.
They’re not ready to sit together and figure this out in a reasonable way.

Brian is upset, hurt and very angry.

And Rita finds it hard to move away from telling you how awful Brian is.
‘Such a difficult person… I’ve never worked with anyone like this…’

You listen patiently, make murmuring noises. They continue to vent.

Getting them into a room together at this point just isn’t going to work…

How can you help them move out of their negativity?

What would help them dissolve some of the hurt and anger so they could be a bit more ‘rational’ about it all?

’Most managers (70%) believe they  do not handle disagreements well – 80% of non-managers believe that conflict is handled badly by those above them in the organisation’

 

Managerial Mediation provides managers with a practical communication tool for resolving conflicts between others. It is a core management competency which enables all managers to intervene with confidence early in conflict, bringing mediation practice into all areas of management. This method was developed by Dan Dana of Mediation Training International now part of the Centre for Conflict Dynamics, Eckerd College, Florida and is used globally.

The Benefits of Managerial Mediation for Managers:

  • It reveals the hidden potential in conflict and enables managers to think more strategically about how to manage difficult situations
  • The cost of conflict within companies can be reduced by up to 40%
  • Greater work satisfaction, cooperation and innovation which lead to performance improvement and increased productivity
  • Individuals are enabled to resolve their own conflicts thereby improving employee engagement and decision making
  • Certification of completion by Mediation Training International (MTI)

The Benefits of Managerial Mediation for Mediators

  • A deeper appreciation and understanding of workplace conflict leading to great conflict competence
  • The development of new skills and knowledge about a different model of mediation in a  management context
  • An additional conflict resolution tool for mediators who also manage others, where formal mediation is not required
  • It provides a new service offering for your workplace clients (with additional train the trainer certification)

Conflict Dynamics Profile One Day Certification Workshop

Presented by Mary Lou O'Kennedy. From Fri 24 May 2019 to Fri 24 May 2019

Royal Marine Hotel, DunLaoghaire
7 CPD Points

Workshop Overview

Research shows that effective conflict management skills are crucial for employers, managers and leaders, leading to greater conflict resolution, productivity, performance management, employee engagement and talent retention. The Conflict Dynamics Profile assessments provide an innovative essential tool kit for conflict management professionals working in this field wishing to enhance their clients’ skills and conflict competence.

The Conflict Dynamics Profile (CDP) assessments are powerful tools for building awareness of how we respond to conflict in the workplace, and how we can improve on behaviours that cause us the most difficulty. They provide us with extraordinary clarity about our own conflict triggers or ‘hot buttons’ and the extent to which we use constructive and destructive behaviours when we are in conflict. These user-friendly processes provide accessible and clear data for users, enhancing their self -awareness and emotional intelligence leading to greater conflict competence.

There are three versions of the CDP: the CDP-Individual, the CDP- 360 and the CDP Team. The CDP-I is a ‘self-report’ completed only by the user themselves, the CDP-360 is a full spectrum tool completed by the user but also by their boss, peers and direct reports. The CDP Team is constructed using the aggregated results of the CDP-Individual reports of each team member.

The CDP tools are being used the great effect in mediation and in the training and coaching of employers, managers and leaders, in Ireland and in the UK. The Conflict Dynamics Profile provides clear direction to users on how to become conflict competent thereby achieving positive outcomes to workplace conflict. They must however be administered by certified professionals only, who can interpret and analyse the data effectively, working through to a personal development plan for each user.

This one-day Certification Workshop is designed to train participants in the application and interpretation of the CDP-I and CDP Team assessment tools, leading to Certification.

Further training is available for practitioners wishing to certify in the use of the CDP-360

What Other Companies Say About Us

 

‘I have found CDP to be an invaluable tool that brings new depth to the mediation process, enabling participants in situations of conflict to also explore their own internal conflict dynamics. This shift in self-focus can be an invaluable component in conflict resolution, both for the mediator and for the parties in conflict.  Used in a team setting, CDP can potentially bring to the surface new insights into aspects of team or organisational culture that may otherwise have remained unseen. CDP is robust, responsive, adaptable and capable of encompassing diversity, each individual profile reflecting a unique perspective.

CDP is a skill that can be taught, and learned, opening minds and hearts to greater awareness, as well as delivering results that are practical, measurable and visible. In the very capable hands OAK, its potential is magnified as they have the skills to detect, explore and reveal new insights for the user.  This awareness is the key to rebalancing one’s perspective. The experience resembles taking a photograph from the inside-out, and self-adjusting one’s focus to obtain the desired outcome (perhaps one that might previously have proven elusive or beyond reach).  I have found from experience that the blueprint of one’s behaviour, post-CDP, illuminates subsequent action and enables informed choice on the path to change.

"I found the Workshop to be well structured and comfortably paced. The facilitators are hugely experienced both in terms of usage of  CDP and generally in terms of conflict prevention and management. I left confident that I could and would use CDP in my Mediation practice as it provides valuable insights for those undertaking the self-assessment as it does for those administering it. Two well spent days!"
