UPDATE ON CHILD INCLUSIVE MEDIATION TRAINING CHANGE OF DATES to January and March 2023
The MII Family Mediation Committee are currently working on MII's Child Inclusive Mediation Policy and Procedures, which will be published later this year. One of MII's requirements to practise in this area will be the successful completion of a recognised CIM training course. See the Advisory Note on CIM practice on the MII website members area, which we issued earlier in the year.
The Family Mediation Committee has been researching the accredited CIM courses available internationally and have been in contact with the Family Mediators Association (FMA) UK. The FMA run many mediation training courses including one in Child Inclusive Mediation (CIM). We have arranged for them to put on their 3-day CIM course in Dublin in March 2023 - March 10th, 11th and 12th.
The cost of the training is being offered to MII family mediators at a special price of £590 +VAT.
The FMA also run a CIM 'Awareness and Understanding' 1 day on-line course, which briefly explains the CIM practice, principles and process and is an excellent introductory course for those considering working in the area of CIM before committing to the 3 day course.
The cost of this one day training is £190 +VAT. Attendance at this introductory course is a pre-requisite to attending the 3-day full CIM training.
A minimum of 10, maximum 20 participants on each course. Please register directly with FMA. The links for registration are set out below:
We would be grateful if you could let us know to firstname.lastname@example.org if you are registering for either of the Awareness and Understanding courses and whether you are planning to attend the three day training in March, to give us an indication of numbers.

The MII accredits mediation training courses which meet set training standards.
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.
