Community Mediation offers Facilitation Training
Facilitator training prepares you to moderate group discussions, promoting dialogue that is communicative, effective, balanced, and productive.
Community Mediation held a facilitator training in January.
Facilitators moderate groups using the Study Circles model of discussion. A successfully facilitated discussion Circle:
- Achieves participation from multiple people
- Embraces diversity
- Shares knowledge, resources, power, and decision-making
- Combines dialogue and deliberation to build understanding and explore a wide range of solutions
- Connects dialogue to action, creating real change: social, political, attitudinal and personal.
Facilitator training is hands on and interactive. You will have a chance to practice and get feed back on the skills you have learned.
Community Mediation-trained facilitators have moderated forums on:
- Police-Citizen relations
- Racial tension in New Haven
- Stereotypes in faith communities
- Commercial development in residential areas
- Ex-offenders’ transitions into society
- The use of the “N-word” in schools
- Armed patrols in city neighborhoods
