Introductory Mediation Training

October 15-17, 2018

8:30-5:00 pm
Hosted by Iowa Mediation Service
West Des Moines

Learning to mediate allows you to help disputing parties settle their issues outside of the courtroom. Mediating a dispute of any kind requires a great deal of skill. There are often many issues to address and the mediator must take into account the roles, rights and responsibilities of each party in a dispute.

The goal of mediation is to help disputing parties reach a solution on their own. It gives them control over their situation. Mediation encourages the cooperation and participation of all parties in making the decisions that affect their lives, families, careers and future. As a result, agreements are more likely to be honored by all parties.

Mediation is increasing in popularity and many court systems in Iowa require disputing parties to attempt mediation before moving on to other forms of dispute resolution. If you want to learn the basic theory and skills necessary to formally practice mediation as an expansion of you present professional work, Iowa Mediation Service can help. IMS provides training in Iowa for those who want to understand mediation strategies, negotiation skills and problem-solving techniques to integrate into your practice.

In addition to Mediation Training, IMS also personalizes trainings to businesses and organizations. IMS Trainers meet with the organizations to identify their training needs and develops beginning and advanced programs on subjects such as:

• Conflict Resolution
• Successful Supervision of Employees
• Listening
• Creating a Positive Work Environment
• Understanding Human Behavior Via the Three Principles of Mind, Thought, & Consciousness
• Harassment Prevention
• Transitions: Smoothing the Road to Change

Heartland Regional Mediation Conference

May 2 & 3, 2019

Thursday, May 2, 1:00 – 5:00 pm
Friday, May 3, 8:30 am – 4:00 pm
Mid-America Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa

Every three years, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and Kansas mediators come together for a regional mediation conference, offering fresh ideas and opportunities about what’s happening in the
other states. 2019 is Iowa’s year to host, and the Regional Mediation Conference Committee is excited to share its plans.

The past two Iowa-hosted regionals have been held in central Iowa. The committee decided it was time to offer the western side of the state a chance to host and encourage more participation from other states, especially Nebraska. The Mid-America Center is a wonderful facility and centrally placed in case participants would like to visit Old Town in Omaha, drive five minutes to downtown Omaha, or visit other sites.

Speaker: Attorney, Katherine E. Miller, from the Center for Understanding in Conflict will be presenting on “Facilitating Conversations of Consequence – Advanced Mediation & Conflict
Training.” The impact of Katherine’s trainings brings accolades like: “The program teaches more than just new skills…” and “This program has forever changed me as an individual…and will forever change the way I manage conflict, personally, and professionally.”

This is a conference you will not want to miss, so SAVE THE DATE!

Submitted by the Regional Mediation Conference Committee. Questions, and opportunities to get involved can be addressed to Scarlett Lunning: 515-314-8141, Scarlett@lunningcoaching.com
