Neuroawareness® online training

In collaboration with Neuroawareness® Consulting Services, Resolution Institute provides this online training in the application of neuroscience to ADR practice at a special price.

The training is an opportunity to expand your ADR practice by learning techniques based on neurobiology and cognitive science and by working online with a network of peers across Australasia.

  • How does the human brain process information when we try to make a decision, manage our emotions, focus our attention, respond, or analyse the behaviour of “others”?
  • What are the biological processes and mechanisms involved in the brains of the mediator and of the parties before and during mediation? How can these be optimised?
  • How can we design the mediation process to take into account such processes and mechanisms?
  • How can we develop our own sense of mindfulness and what are the benefits of doing so?

This 14 session live online program will help you find your own answers to these questions, reflect upon your personal profile and professional practice, and provide you with practical tools and techniques.
