The Mediation Times


Extreme Training …

by Amanda on April 17, 2009

… is the title for two interesting courses promoted by MATA. These are not just relevant for mediators. Others who deal with difficult negotiations would certainly benefit.

Extreme Negotiations will be lead by Duncan Jarratt OBE, ex Metropolitan Police hostage negotiator.

Dates: 8 May 2009 or 20 November 2009

Extreme Conversations with Peter Birch, actor, business psychologist and mediator.

I am a real fan of forum theatre as a learning environment. In 2002, I ran a series of high energy, highly emotional training sessions for railway maintenance professionals to help them develop skills to manage the conflicts between costs and safety. It was very popular with an unlikely group (over 1500 participants), and in one session, a normally “restrained” participant was so convinced by the scenarios and the actors he completely forgot that they were actors, jumped up and started to have a blazing row about something that was bothering him! Wonderful!

Highly recommended.

Dates: 15 June or 8 December
