Led by our Chairman Christopher To, this five-day 40-hour intensive program delves into the range of skills required of elite mediators through interactive tutorials and role-play simulations. Participants are offered insights into ethical dilemmas, implicit bias, and emotions, and they are trained in tested practical techniques such as active listening, asking probing questions, generating creative options, reframing, overcoming impasse, and formulating sustainable agreements.

This training serves as a preparatory course for the assessment at Hong Kong Mediation Accreditation Association Limited.
