Corporations, government agencies, and other organizations are discovering the immense benefits of mediation over traditional adversarial methods of dispute resolution. The financial cost of unresolved conflict is high, yet measurable. Costs of litigation and grievance-handling are dramatically reduced by early mediation, preventing further escalation. Mediation not only resolves conflicts - it increases productivity, saves time and money, creates a safer workplace, and promotes a climate of cooperativeness.
This program is excellent preparation for those who plan to enter the field of dispute resolution and mediation, as well as for all individuals interested in acquiring mediator skills. The techniques, approaches and skills learned in this class have benefited professionals in HR, supervisory or managerial roles, corporate executives, and sales professionals.
Students who successfully complete this 40 hour course are eligible for a Mediations Certificate allowing them to mediate professionally.

Anne Lightsey, when she was 23, Anne arrived in Brazil for a 2 year YMCA work assignment with no job description, no easily identifiable skills, and not able to speak a word of Portuguese. Yet the local CEO sensed potential, so he was willing to give her a shot. Soon enough she was fluently training others in vital life skills and guiding them forward to a future path of foreign travel, a program the YMCA continues to use to this day.
It was through this adventure that she discovered that creating and delivering customized trainings are both a passion and a gift, one for which she has received national awards and recognition. Her expertise includes training individuals and organizations in Mediation, Win-Win Communication Skills, Tools for Mastering Difficult Conversations, Strengthening Personal Resiliency, and Ethics -- to name a few. Today, Anne's talents enrich and change the lives of individuals in critical life stages and seeking personal development.
