NAFCM Webinars

 

Welcome to the home of NAFCM's Community Mediation Webinar Series! NAFCM's webinars are professionally designed, delivered by leaders in the community mediation field, and provide actionable recommendations and tangible resources to enhance key areas of center administration. In designing this series, NAFCM has innovated its traditional in-person trainings to meet the demands of today's community mediation programs.

This series responds to both the continued financial hardships faced by many programs, as well as their local mandates to do even more good with fewer resources. Stripped of the requirement to incur often substantial travel expenses and related out-of-office hassles, the Community Mediation Webinar Series and NAFCM On Demand will allow program administrators, volunteers, and board members to keep atop latest developments and enrich their skills from the comfort of their own office. Read about each of the upcoming individual courses below, review 
our past trainings in our NAFCM On Demand, and register today!

Our society is well acquainted and comfortable with using the problem-solving method to overcome challenges that we face both interpersonally and organizationally. Our role as conflict specialists provides us opportunities to engage individuals within this process of identifying and discussing problems. We typically do so in an attempt that will allow the clients to recognize options and develop feasible resolutions to the conflicts that emerge as a result of organizational challenges. In this seminar, I will introduce the appreciative inquiry method as an approach to create sustainable resolutions to the conflicts that arise from the challenges our clients face. This method derives from the field of positive psychology and allows us to reframe the focus of our inquiry from problem based to strength based. There is a long list of literature that illustrates the utilization of this method within organizational development initiatives, however I will discuss the feasibility for you to utilize this method within your mediation practice.
