Increasing Empathy in your mediation practice
There is a consensus that empathy is a good idea in mediation, however it is often underused in practice. Drawing on Nonviolent Communication, this session will share the nuts and bolts of empathy and give practice of how to utilise it in mediations.
Empathy can be a route to overcoming judgement, and can be helpful if you have judgements of one or both parties (or yourself!), enabling you to develop your capacity for multi-partiality.
This training will include an introduction to Nonviolent communication and we will apply the principles and practice of Empathy to the dilemmas you face in your work.
