DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SCREENING FOR MEDIATION
8 Hour Certificate Training for Mediators
December 12, 2022
8:30am - 4:30 pm
*You must have completed a 40-hour mediation training to attend this training*
Maine Association of Mediators is offering Domestic Violence Screening for Mediators, a course designed to help meet the requirements to apply to the Court Alternative Dispute Resolution Services (CADRES) roster and assist all mediators with this essential skill. This course is designed to meet the eight (8) hour CADRES roster training requirement for domestic violence (DV). Brenda Mitchell, a longtime CADRES mediator who has dedicated her career to giving voice to victims of abuse through training and advocacy, developed this training and has offered it on a semi-annual basis for many years. Brenda began her career working in a large institution for people with developmental disabilities. In that capacity, she experienced, firsthand, the abuse and neglect that is perpetrated upon people who have no voice. Today, she draws upon her vast training in Non-Violent Communication, years of service in the non-profit arena, and in her mediation practice. Brenda is pleased to offer this training in collaboration with colleagues Erin Clough, Karen Groat, and Pamela Waite.
Through this course, mediators will learn how to:
- Define DV, its role in communication with a demonstration and practice in methods of screening
- Help the mediator determine if there is a history of DV in the relationship
- Formulate strategies for how to mediate if there is a DV history
- Design a safety plan for before, during, and after the mediation session
