Alternative dispute resolution skills offer a means of reaching an agreement where all parties benefit. This course is designed to give you an insight into the skills needed to settle a dispute to a mutually beneficial outcome, in a manner that does not involve lengthy legal proceedings.
This course aims to provide the essential skills needed to arrive at a win-win situation in the dispute resolution process. This is achieved by examining why conflict and disputes arise and then examining alternative dispute resolution (via the mediation, conciliation and arbitration processes) as ways of solving the conflict or disputes.
