ADR CENTER’S 4X4 MATRIX
The trainings methodology in basic mediation techniques will be based on the proven ADR Center’s four by four matrix developed to facilitate the transfer of know-how to new mediators over the four main phases of mediation (preparation, opening joint session, private sessions and closing session). For each phase, the trainer will illustrate goals, agenda and tactics.
Each square of the matrix represents an argument that will be explored with the participants through lectures, power-point presentations, simulations, role-play, video and feedbacks.
4 STEPS is the Teaching method developed by ADR Center to offer participants the opportunity to learn, in a quick and stimulating way, by offering immediate practice exercises and one-on-one feedback.
Watch Video Simulations
After introducing a principle, a theory or a problem, (1) participants are shown a relevant video simulation.
Next, instructors facilitate a discussion, focusing on the goals and the agenda of the actors, and the more common mistakes people commit in those situations.
Subsequently, participants are divided into groups and receive instructions for a role play exercise, so as to experiment with what they have seen on video and discussed.
Finally, after observing the role plays, instructors provide participants with constructive feedback for areas of improvement.
Depending on the complexity of the exercise, the role play might precede the video, to prevent participants from simply mimicking the behavior of the actors.
