Mediation Training

Erickson Mediation Training Bloomington MN Thanks so much for the wonderful training we received from you! It was one of the best I’ve ever been through (and I’ve been through more than my share). I can’t recall the last time I spent 10 hours a day in one chair and was ready for more. I guess time flies when you’re having fun, but when you’re learning something interesting as well.” -David B.

In 1980, Erickson Mediation Institute conducted the first 40-Hour Divorce Mediation Training in the country and co-wrote the curriculum that is still used today. Since then, we have trained thousands of judges, pastors, mental health professionals, and others throughout the U.S.A., Canada, England, and the Netherlands. Wiley & Sons published EMI’s Divorce Mediation Training Manual in 2001.

Types of Training

Erickson Mediation Institute not only offers basic mediation training for those looking to become mediators, we also provide advanced mediation training for practicing mediators who are looking to enhance and expand their knowledge and skills and mediation seminars designed to provide other professionals with valuable conflict resolution and mediation skills that can be used within their current profession.

Don’t see a training that looks just right? Erickson Mediation Institute also develops customized trainings for organizations and groups that are looking for a tailored training to meet their specific needs.

Presentation Style

EMI’s trainings and seminars feature lecture, interactive exercises, role playing and discussion. We teach a client-centered model of mediation, which is used extensively throughout the field by professional mediators who facilitate a process of resolving conflict and decision-making based on clients’ creativity and their own sense of fairness. It has evolved over the last thirty-five years dating back to the first divorce mediation and community mediators who began in the early 1970s and has become a highly successful method of mediation with great client satisfaction.

Our Midwest training facility in Bloomington, Minnesota, is conveniently located for people from Minnesota, Iowa, North and South Dakota, Wisconsin, and has hosted attendees from all over the world.
