Product Description:

New York Peace Institute (NYPI) is offering our Spring 5-Day Basic Mediation Training in-person this May 2023. The training will be held at The Bronx Zoo from 9:00am - 5:00pm daily from Monday, May 8th through Friday, May 12th, 2023. Please note that you must attend the entire training to obtain your certificate.


This training lays the groundwork for anyone interested in becoming a mediator and enhancing their conflict resolution skills. Applicants who complete this BMT are eligible to apply, and their applications are favored, for New York Peace Institute's Apprenticeship Program and joining our roster of volunteer community mediators.


During the BMT we explore questions like:

·         What is mediation and how does it compare to other forms of alternative dispute resolution?

·         What are the core skills I need to be an effective mediator?

·         What are the foundational values of mediation?

·         How can I identify and respond to power imbalances?

·         How can I identify and respond to different values, cultural norms, and biases?

·         What is my role as a mediator?

·         What are the best practices for online mediation?

·         What is a successful mediation?


Chris Daly Esq. will be the lead trainer and will be joined by NYPI staff and coaches. The training will be interactive, and a variety of learning methods will be used including:

·         simulations

·         role plays

·         practice exercises

·         video clips

·         dedicated question and answer sessions


This 40-hour BMT is CDRC approved and also approved for the 24 hours of Initial Mediation Training by the New York State Unified Court System's Office of ADR Programs under Part 146. Final placement on any court roster is at the discretion of the local Administrative Judge, and participation in a course does not guarantee placement on a local court roster. Some courts may require additional training and experience beyond Part 146's requirements. Acceptance on court rosters may depend on a court's need for mediators at any given time and may include a particular court's need for mediators with specific case-type training or experience.

CLE credit for the BMT will be offered pending approval - 35 Skills credits, 2.5 Ethics and Professionalism credits, and for experienced attorneys, 1 Diversity, Inclusion, and Elimination of Bias credit. The course is appropriate for non-attorneys, newly admitted attorneys, and/or experienced attorneys.



This in-person BMT will cost $1,625 per person for the full 5-day training. Scholarships are available. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is April 17th, 2023, by no later than 5:00 pm ET. You can apply for a scholarship here.
