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.

For information in relation to MII accreditation, membership, ethics or policy you should review the relevant section of this web site or contact

The day has finally arrived and I am making no apologies for my levels of excitement, so let me explain...

First, I hope you found something useful within the Mediation Marketing EBook - it's been staggering seeing the number of downloads of the EBook. Furthermore, from your generous emails, comments and survey results we've been able to learn a tremendous amount about the challenges that impede the progress of many a mediator. Marketing was just one piece of this jigsaw.

Secondly, and this is the bit that I'm excited about. (If you can't wait, you can jump straight to this 4-min video - but I suggest you read on..)

WATCH VIDEO Now >>

It's always been my philosophy at Mediator Academy to learn from the experience of others because I believe we are drowning in information but starved of wisdom.

Over the past 4 years, I've interviewed hundreds of mediators from around the world, from 'the big names' as well as those that are quietly going about their business - all experiencing success; all well on their way to realising their dreams and aspirations. 

The one big thing I have learnt is that success leaves clues.

You see many of these mediators consider themselves lucky, deep down I think they are all humble souls. But when it comes to building a business of any kind, I think you make your own luck.

Once again to quote my favourite Roman Stoic Philosopher: 

'Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity. Seneca

So together with my team of Sherlock Holmes' masterminds we've assembled a faculty of a dozen mediation titans and have distilled into 5 modules a step-by-step blueprint to help you start, launch and grow a mediation business.

Today I'm excited because I'm announcing the launch of our 4-week online coaching programme for mediators called Galvanise. This is a complete foundation to help you start, launch and grow a mediation business.

 

REGISTER TODAY >>

 

So if you are:

·                  Starting out in mediation.

·                  Struggling to get momentum and get your business off the ground.

·                  Looking at how to you can increase your referrals 

·                  Wanting to Shorten your learning curve and learn from mediators with proven track records

...then this programme is essential for you.

Because it's an interactive online programme running over a 4-week period, places are limited and we'll be closing registration in 7 days after which the course will begin.

Building Strong Relationships And A Healthy Workplace Culture Using A Restorative Approach

Presented by NUI Maynooth. From Mon 18 Sep 2017 to Mon 18 Sep 2017

NUI Maynooth

Terry O'Connell, renowned Restorative Practitioner and Founder of Real Justice Australia, is back in Dublin on 18th September to deliver a one day workshop at the Edward Kennedy Institute or Conflict Intervention, Maynooth University. Building Strong Relationships and a Healthy Workplace Culture is for Managing Directors, Line Managers, H.R Personnel and anyone who is responsible for leading and managing people in workplaces of all descriptions.

Conflicts,  tensions,  performance  management  or  inappropriate  behaviour  are  issues common to every workplace. The process you use  to  ‘engage’  others  is  critical  and  respectful  challenge  is  the  key.  This  is most  effective  where  there  is  a  shared  understanding  on  what  it  takes  to  foster  healthy  workplace  relationships. The  notion  of  a  ‘restorative’ culture  implies  that  the  focus  is  on  relationships  where  harm  [rather  than  blame]  provides  opportunities  for  learning  and  growth.   

In this One Day Workshop Participants  will  learn  how  to: 

        •  Build  an  explicit  practice  framework. 

        •  Be  more  consistent  and  intentional  in  day-to-day  work. 
        •  Respectfully  challenge  others. 

        •  Understand  the  importance  of  asking  the  right  questions   
        •  Levy  responsibility  and  accountability  to  others. 

        •  Facilitate  workplace  processes  with  greater  awareness  and 
               confidence. 

This  workshop  is  ideally  suited  to  supervisors,  managers,  Human  Resources personnel  and  workplace  mediators. 

18th  SEPTEMBER  2017  from  9.30AM  to  4.30PM  :  Price  175.00

Mediation to manage separation and divorce is reputed to have better outcomes for children than court. However, parents in mediation are often stressed, angry, emotionally charged and / or grieving and are not always able to focus on their children’s best interests and needs at that time. Therefore, it is the mediator who must bring these voices into the room and most importantly allow them to be heard and acted upon.

This one-day practice orientated workshop will enable you to:

  • Examine the implication of the Children and Family Relationships Act 2016 and the much anticipated Mediation Bill 2017 for Family Mediators
  • Develop skills in changing the focus of parents from their conflict to their children’s issues
  • Explore different ways to bring the needs and wishes of children into play metaphorically
  • Discuss the issues around child consultation in mediation
  • Practice skill development using role play

Facilitator: Lindara Kiely, Family Mediator, M.A. Mediation and Conflict Intervention

All participants must be mediators registered with the Mediators Institute of Ireland or equivalent.

Lunch is not provided: Restaurants are available on campus and in Maynooth town
