Mediation Skills for Mental Health Professionals
It is becoming increasingly important to be able to deal with conflict appropriately, whether in the workplace, home or school. Therapists have the additional burden of facing and working through clients’ conflicts. Unfortunately, dealing with uncomfortable conflict within the counseling setting can increase stress and burnout. Mediation offers a structured process that you can use when destructive conflict seeps into your clients’ lives. This interactive program will provide you with a unique opportunity to enhance your negotiation and conflict management skills and abilities. You will also walk away with tools and techniques that you will be able to teach your clients.
