Community Mediator Orientation Program

(Code: ITP01) (2 days: 15 hours)
Community Mediation provides an important service to the community. It is intended to contribute to the happiness and harmony of the community. In Community mediation, mediation is provided by trained community mediators who represent the community.

Community mediation mechanisms are viewed as an opportunity for citizens to participate in the prevention and early intervention of conflicts as an alternative to institutional mechanisms.

The principles of mediation can actually be used to resolve any misunderstanding or dispute in any facet of our life. In fact, applying the principles properly at the earliest signs of conflict can help keep a situation from escalating into a full blown, knockdown, drag out fight, or worse. We have a large population of eminent and respectable people in the community, like retired people, house wives and others who could contribute some of their time to work as Mediators. It’s a leadership skill that is well worth developing and honing.

Ever thought of becoming a Community Mediator? It takes courage and patience to take up the responsibility of becoming a mediator. Apart from the acceptance and honour given by the community, it also gives absolute satisfaction of becoming peace builders in our community. People from a wide variety of backgrounds can make good mediators. Basically they have to have the fear of God, a concern for humanity, passion for mediation, and be guided by love and stand for peace. They are respected and command an audience and above all, trusted.

IIAM offers orientation for mediators. There is no specific qualification for a mediator. But they have to be persons who have a good repute in the local area with integrity and sense of fairness. The Training programs at IIAM offer you the opportunity to learn what is necessary to become a mediator yourself. Experienced and highly knowledgeable trainers introduce you to the theory and concepts that form the basis of mediation practice. The course provides participants with the opportunity to practice this structured dispute resolution process through a series of interactive presentations, role play simulations, real life case studies and discussion groups. The training will be for 15 hours conducted in 2 days.

As per IIAM Mediator Accreditation System, a candidate having successfully undergone IIAM Community Mediator Orientation Program is categorised as an IIAM Community Mediator.
