Mediation Skills for the Indian Audience

by Bruce Edwards
December 2018

Full training information for mediators in India is HERE

Bruce Edwards
This course provides the same information as our regular Mediation Skills Course, but it has been augmented to better serve mediators who are located in India. The course emphasizes the key principles that beginning mediators should understand and how they apply in an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) environment. It is designed for individuals who wish to work in the commercial mediation field or community mediation arena and seek to proactively prevent disputes or settle disputes before they become lawsuits. Our students are professionals in the legal field, government, hospitals, educational institutions and the business world.

This course is taught by established mediation leaders, several of whom are widely acknowledged pioneers of mediation in India. The course is designed to be taken online, on your schedule, and in your own space. We recommend that you take the Mediation Skills course in modules, focusing on completing one module at a time. Then, spend a few days implementing what you have learned before beginning the next module. Practice and reflection are encouraged through online exercises and worksheets (available with course materials). Assessments by EMA are included.

Estimated course completion: 40 hours

“I met Mr. Bruce Edwards at a Mediator’s Training Programme organized by him along with the Centre for Advanced Practice in Bangalore……A remarkable trainer and an internationally acknowledged mediator….he has the unique ability to transmit that experience to others through simple illustrations and rigorous practical exercises. I am sure in developing countries like India which are looking for alternatives to long-drawn litigation and adjudication of disputes, training institutions like judical academies and ADR Centres will be greatly benefitted by collaborating with Bruce,”
Prof. N. R. Madhava Menon Former Vice-Chancellor of National Law School of India University, Bangalore and Former Director of National Judicial Academy, Bhopal

Biography


Bruce Edwards was one of the pioneers in developing mediation as a tool for resolving commercial disputes. A professional mediator since 1985, Bruce has helped mediation gain widespread acceptance in the United States legal system as an alternative to often costly and time-consuming litigation.

A graduate of UC Hastings College of the Law in 1981, Bruce became a partner in the international San Francisco litigation firm then known as Sedgwick, Detert, Moran & Arnold, LLP. After being introduced to the power of mediation in 1985, it soon became the focus of his practice. Through mediation, he has brought the principles of psychology and therapeutic science to a world of traditional dispute resolution, judicial settlement conferences and trials.
