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!
 
Participation in Community Mediation Webinar Series events is FREE for current NAFCM Members. (Contact NAFCM for the appropriate discount code to use during registration.) Non-members are invited to participate at a rate of $25 per webinar. (For greatest savings, consider joining or renewing your NAFCM membership.)

Mediating Workplace Disputes in Correctional Facilities

 

Susan Stacey

 

November 8, 2018

2:00 PM ET / 1:00 PM CT / 12:00 PM MT / 11:00 AM PT


The Integrated Conflict Management System (an internal program of the Minnesota Department of Corrections) promotes a conflict competent workplace culture by providing staff conflict resolution trainings, aligning agency policies and practices to encourage staff to talk things through, providing Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR) options, and gaining feedback through evaluations and staff surveys. As part of the Integrated Conflict Management System (ICMS) training plan, all staff have received basic training about conflict, all supervisors have been trained to use MTI's Managerial Mediation, staff of six correctional facilities have been trained in MTI’s Self Mediation, and thousands of staff have completed other online and classroom conflict management courses. The ICMS and its conflict response services (mediation, circles, workplace conferences, and conflict coaching) are based in restorative justice and transformative mediation principles and practices. Staff members in all types of positions across the department are trained to provide the conflict response services and skills trainings; they do that on top of their jobs for no additional pay.

This seminar will describe the ICMS program and suggest that similar trainings and services might be useful to other public and private organizations.

Dan Berstein

 

May 9, 2019

2:00 PM ET / 1:00 PM CT / 12:00 PM MT / 11:00 AM PT


1 in 5 people have a diagnosable mental health problem each year. Are you ready for these issues when they impact your cases? Do you know what to do when a party discloses a mental health diagnosis? Or when one party accuses another of having one? How about when you, the practitioner, suspect that a mental health issue is at play? This program teaches conflict resolvers to become sensitive, accessible, and impartial toward parties with mental health needs. Dan also shares tools for your practice.
