Post training professional development  

ADR-ODR International is passionate about conflict resolution and we firmly believe that each and every graduate of our course should be provided with every opportunity to develop their skills and become peacemakers following successful completion of their mediation training with us.

At ADR-ODR International we believe that delegates learn best by practising mediation skills. This is why all of our mediation pro- grammes are skill-based and focused on practical learning.

The programme is presented by highly experienced international tutors and mediation practitioners who give comprehensive feedback and guidance throughout.

The course creates a rich and stimulating environment with plenty of opportunities to interact with the course trainers and fellow delegates. Case study mediation exercises, group discussions and de-briefing sessions enable you to practice the skills you have learned.
