Advanced Mediation Training | Sydney 26 -27 June 2024

Mediators wishing to apply for accreditation as Advanced Mediators must now undertake a 2-day training workshop which focuses on practical skills and self-reflection.

This new training workshop has been developed in response to the newly released Australian Mediation Dispute Resolution Accreditation Standards (AMDRAS).  The new Standards for Mediators recognise different levels of accreditation, including Advanced Mediator.  

Resolution Institute has recognised Advanced Mediators for well over a decade, and is excited to continue to lead the training and development of mediators in Australia and NZ in the future.

If you wish to apply to join the RI Advanced Mediator panel please join Nina Harding for this intensive two-day workshop.

Pre-requisites for this training

  • NMAS or Resolution Institute Accredited Mediator for at least 4 years. 
  • Have completed at least 40 hours of mediation.

Each participant will prepare a real (de-identified) case study for discussion at the workshop.

There will be some pre-workshop reading.

Workshop objectives:


  • to give participants the opportunity to share and discuss their practical experiences as a mediator, to give and receive constructive feedback
  • to identify practice obstacles and challenges in mediation, and ways of overcoming them
  • to identify and demonstrate an understanding of the purpose, techniques and skills required for each stage of the mediation process
  • awareness of socio-cultural considerations when mediating with culturally and linguistically diverse communities, or with indigenous communities
  • to identify and demonstrate the characteristics of a mindful and reflective mediator
