Mediators without Borders® (MwB) is bringing their globally recognized ACCORD mediation training model to Dallas, Texas. The intensive 3-day course will be held January 20-22, 2012 in the Blue Room at South Side. The CORE Mediation Certificate Course is the first step in bringing one of 50 nationwide MwB mediation training and services clinics to Dallas in 2012. The course employs a proven, international protocol that delivers the core skillsets needed to start a new profession as a mediator or simply acquire a newfound ability to resolve disputes, a capability that can make or break careers and relationships. The demand for quality mediation training is fueled by the growing cost of civil litigation—now $200-$300 billion annually— making it an increasingly essential skillset for management and HR professionals.

According to MwB CEO, Shauna Ries, “In Texas alone, there are 250,000 civil cases on backlog in our courts, and it is growing each year. Our courts are not able to keep up with the overwhelming demand. Most importantly, Accord Conflict Analysis™ model is a game-changer personally and professionally. People fear conflict, but you can’t run from it. Acquiring mediation training certification means the power to turn frustration and anger into confident negotiating skills.” Ries went on to add, “Mediation can be a powerful addition to a resume or the route to earning more trust, respect and satisfaction in the workplace. It is the art and science of interacting well with others, building great relationships, even closing a complex business deal.”

U.S. Government data suggests that mediation is a “green” field growing faster than average at a rate of 20% per year. Mediation can be a full-time practice, or a valuable skill incorporated into other professions. A county-level Work Force organization says that acquisition of “middle skills” like mediation is one of the #1 qualities for twenty-first century employment. In other words, employers don’t just want people who can do their job; they want people with exceptional people skills like negotiation, facilitation, mediation and conflict resolution. MwB mediation training courses surpass industry standards, and meet criteria for many continuing education units; including legal and human resource programs.

Mediation is a fast-growing means of conflict resolution that provides disputants an alternative to the court system. Unlike traditional legal approaches, it is based on negotiating a mutually defined, goal-oriented, win/win solution. Mediation is currently being used in the areas of divorce and parenting, construction, workplace, health and elder care, to name a few, and has proven to be extremely successful.

The 3-day intensive Core Mediation Training Certificate Course employs live classroom mentoring with distance learning to pack the best practices of all mediation disciplines into one engaging, proven program.
