    Saskatoon Community Mediation Services (SCMS) works hand in hand with Resolution Skills Centre (RSC) in Winnipeg, a leader in resolution training locally, nationally and internationally. They offer individual courses, certificate programs, and customized training for your workplace. They help individuals build confidence to effectively address conflicts in their workplaces, homes and communities through a wide range of courses. SCMS works as a satellite office for RSC, to offer some of the following Mediation courses here in Saskatoon:

    Dealing with Difficult People (DDP) (2 days)
    Through this course you will explore personal case studies and consider how you respond to difficult people and conflict situations and how that affects your life. You will learn communication skills to use in difficult situations and increase your ability to proactively engage others to resolve conflict. More importantly, you will learn and practice processes for clearing up misunderstandings, recovering from mistakes and resolving disagreements. Fee: $350

    Mediation Skills Training Level 1 (3 days)
    In this workshop, participants will be introduced to a comprehensive model for conducting interpersonal mediation. A process that typically unfolds over a period of weeks and months will be explored intensively over 3 action-packed days. Experienced mediators will provide coaching and feedback along the way. (Pre-requisite: Dealing with Difficult People) Fee: $695

    Mediation Skills Training Level 2 (3 days)
    Participants will build on and strengthen their capacity to make use of the comprehensive model for conducting inter-personal mediation that was introduced in level one. Skills related to conducting initial interviews, co-mediator planning, follow-up preparation/coaching, and carrying out mediation in situations where parties have an ongoing relationship will be strengthened. Additional frameworks and skills related to restorative justice, screening and assessment, and for addressing a host of other challenges that inevitably arise in the course of mediation will also be explored. Experienced Mediators will provide coaching and feedback throughout. (Pre-requisite: Mediation Level One (1) Fee: $695

    Mediation Skills for Leaders (2 days)
    Managers, Supervisors, Elders and Community Leaders will face times when they are called to step in and address conflict. When coaching individuals to address the conflict on their own has not been successful, facilitating a mediaion session is often the next step. Take your leadership development to the next level by learning to be proactive and effective in dealing with conflict. This engaging, intensive 2-day workshop provides participants with frameworks and skills to facilitate a mediation session between two people with whom they have a relationship and where there is a vested interest in the outcome. It is recommended you attend Introduction to Mediation: Dealing with Difficult People (DDP) prior to attending this course. (Pre-requisite: Dealing with Difficult People) Fee: $475

    Dealing with Anger (2 days)
    Anger can be an intense and even intimidating emotion. This makes dealing with anger while in conflict a particular challenge. Participants will increase their self-awareness around anger, and explore healthy, productive ways to manage and respond to anger, both within themselves and with others. Note: This is not anger management therapy. (No Pre-requisite) Fee: $360

    Training from Resolution Skills Centre will help you transform conflict into springboard for positive change. With a foundation in conflict resolution theory and hands-on experience practicing resolution skill, you can create effective exchange and develop long-lasting solutions to conflicts in your life.
