“You learn how to be a mediator,” said Hill.
“Mediators are professionals who provide an impartial third-party view to disputes that range from legal settlements to political arguments. They work outside the court system to help parties reach an agreement. You will increase proficiency in the area of effective communication, including, listening skills, negotiation, and conflict resolution.”
“During the role-play of vignettes, you will gain a greater perspective on your conflict resolution style. Completing the 40-hour Basic Mediation seminar, volunteering as a mediator, beginning the credential process with Texas Mediation Credentialing Association, and networking are steps to a career as a mediator,” added Hill.
Tuition is $274 and a manual will be provided. For more information contact Stephen.koszewski@LoneStar.edu or 936.271.6044.
