Learn with us

The UWA Mediation Clinic works closely with the UWA Law School to offer internationally recognised courses.

Several times per year, we offer a nationally accrediated mediation course that is open to staff, alumni, community members, and professionals from any discipline.

We also offer a range of mediation skills and dispute resolution courses that can be tailored to the needs of your organisation or workplace.

How our approach to resolving conflict is different

We believe that the first step toward resolving conflict is to build a full and flexible understanding of the experiences of those invloved in the situation.

At the UWA Mediation Clinic, we have been working with a team of researchers and practitioners to incorporate theoretically-driven and evidence-based psychological concepts into our skills-base and approach.

We have found that these user-friendly concepts complement the facilitative mediation process, and assist us to understand what might be motivating the behaviour we observe when people are under stress.
