Participants will learn negotiation skills and how to select the most cost-effective and least intrusive Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) method to achieve the most positive result for both parties. Students will understand the processes and methods of ADR techniques; learn the proper application and limits of ADR techniques; appreciate the ethical considerations involved in ADR; and develop a basic ability to apply ADR methods.
ADR is geared for all professionals who are focused on "interest-based bargaining." This 42-hour, 7-week course takes the mystery out of settlement processes and focuses on reaching reasonable solutions.
Alternative Dispute Resolution (Mediation) Certificate Course is offered in DVD format. If interested, please call (706) 542-3537 or (800) 811-6644 for more information.
