Attention mediation trainers!!
As part of the family dispute resolution week, FDRIO and Dr. Michael Saini, the Chair in Law and Social Work at the University of Toronto have teamed up to provide an interactive opportunity for mediation trainers to explore the use of simulations (standardized actors) to convey the basic tenants of trauma-informed mediation (TIM).
There has been growing focus on the prevalence and impact of trauma on the lives of families involved in mediation services. Trauma-informed mediation is an approach that challenges mediators to be aware of potential trauma triggers and to engage in empathetic practices to allow parties to engage within their own individualized window of tolerance to resolve disputes.
With the help of simulation, this forum will explore the unique features of TIM and provide practical strategies to integrate into mediation training protocols.
