English for Mediators
As instructors in the mediation courses of Koviak Akademie, we (Frank and Wolfgang) as well as the rest of the teaching staff have been asked by the participants whether it would be possible to add a second course which would enable them to carry out mediations in English. They had been approached by all sorts of foreigners who use English as a lingua franca: Brazilians, Danes, Japanese etc. who wish to solve their conflicts here in Germany in English. We thought about it and found the idea brilliant as well as feasible.
So let’s get started: The course will be taught by the two of us. We will not repeat what you have learnt in your initial mediation course but teach you the language skills and techniques that you need for the mediation process:
- Inviting and instructing your clients
- Structuring the landscape of their issues and concerns
- Leading them away from their positions to their interests and needs
- Non-Violent Communication skills
- Questioning techniques
- Methods and tools for a successful conflict solution
Throughout the course topics can be added and fine tuned according to the requests and needs of participants. Your English Language skills should be on Level B1/B2 European language reference framework or higher.
5 and 19 June and 10 July
Time: 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
