From staff reports
The Athens Area Mediation Service* is sponsoring an intensive training in mediation skills, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., June 14-16. The location will be announced at a later date.
The sessions are open to the public and free for people affiliated with Ohio University.
Participants who attend all three sessions will learn to use their listening skills and thoughtfully structured approaches of mediation to respond to a wide variety of conflict situations.
The training style has been described as informal, participatory, and fun and more than 400 participants have enjoyed it the last six years. Many past participants have reported being more effective in addressing conflict in the workplace and in their family lives.
