Reflective practice and debriefing
Webinar recording | Online | Available for purchase

Every situation in resolving disputes is unique: expect the unexpected.

Mediators learn as they practice and use reflective practice to learn how they learn.

If we were to practice mechanistically using one tool after the other from our toolbox, we neglect or discount the unpredictable nature of human interactions. Reflective practice offers the means for taking a fresh look at our experiences as dispute resolvers. The practical objective is to become more competent through learning ‘through’ and ‘from experience’.
