Cultivating Compassion: Community Mediation Certification Training
Join the California Conference for Equality and Justice (CCEJ) for our 32-hour community mediation training! This four day experience will examine the root causes and intersectional issues that impact conflict. Participants will leave this training with new tools to mediate community conflicts in a way that fosters holistic resolution and repairs healthy connections between participants.
Led by our Restorative Practices in Communities (RPIC) team, CCEJ’s community mediation training introduces the core principles and methods of Alternative Dispute Resolution as well as foundational concepts of restorative justice. We anchor our community mediation work in the relationships of participants and their networks of support.
Trainees will be immersed in conflict resolution theory and learn techniques for mediating issues within: interpersonal relationships, the workplace, organizations, and communities at large. Our curriculum follows American Bar Association guidelines and meets the standards of the California Dispute Resolution Programs Act (DRPA).
The training is structured to give participants time to practice community mediation skills through discussion, hands-on exercises, case studies, role-plays, and feedback from experienced mediators and trainers.
