Mediation Jamming – Roleplay Practice Workshop

This Workshop is organised by Hong Kong Mediation Council Limited ("HKMC") - a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Hong Kong International Arbitration Centre.

Many mediators do not have the time and space to continuously polish their mediation skills after their certification. This workshop organised by the General Mediation Division of HKMC provides you with a role play opportunity for mediators (especially those who has done less than 5 cases). We use the term "jamming" because different role plays will have different outcomes and dynamics based on the chemistry of the mediators and party members. The "jamming" space allows participants to experiment, experience, and understand mediation from different perspectives.

Participants will join different small teams of 5: each team will have 2 mediators, 2 disputing parties and an experienced mediation Coach. At the end of the roleplay, the Coaches will provide practical tips that can help participant mediators maximise the value of the mediation process.

The Workshop will be held face-to-face in Cantonese, at Room 903, 9/F, AIA Hong Kong Tower, Quarry Bay, Hong Kong.Read more
