What is mediation? What is the role of a mediator? What is the legal basis mediation is based on? – Questions that shaped the first module and thus the first weekend of the mediation training. Imke Wulfmeyer guided 11 seminar participants, following theory blocks with practical examples, role plays and exercises for the visualisation of processes, to get closer to the topic of mediation, the procedure and the suitability of such an alternative conflict resolution method. Highlights were the simulations of a court hearing and a mediation, which brought the clear difference and highlighted the value of mediation. The topics were dealt with in a methodical variety: walk&talks, group work, visualizations on flip charts, simulations, power points, worksheets and self-tests offered variety and thus constantly attracted the attention of all participants. The backgrounds of the seminar participants vary, leading to many examples from different fields of work and also private situations. Already after module 1 new perspectives on conflicts and approaches to situations open up.
