Why train with Mediation Matters?

Mediation Matters provides quality mediation training workshops for professionals. You’ll get skills, knowledge, and practical applications. We offer five different mediation workshops. Click on the menu for more information on the training workshops.


We have been training mediators for more than 25 years. Since 1984, we have trained thousands of attorneys, therapists, social workers, managers and others in mediation skills. Participants regularly tell us that this is some of the best professional training they have ever received.

Practical Skills

Participants learn the actual process of mediating. People challenge themselves, gain insights and leave with confidence to use complex mediation skills.

Comprehensive Manual

A 400+ page Manual provides participants with an invaluable resource as part of the workshop and a reference guide beyond it. The divorce workshop also includes a CD with ready-to-use forms.

Small Group

Our workshops are limited to twelve participants. Small group role-playing sessions allow participants to learn the skills of mediation in a safe space with one-on-one feedback from experienced coaches.

Accelerated Learning

Analyzing the work of the country’s leading mediators accelerates the learning curve. So do the role-playing opportunities and one-on-one coaching.


We don’t just lecture. The trainers use a format that includes videotapes, demonstrations, simulations, discussion, and even music and poetry throughout.
