How can we all be of support when conflict, misunderstandings, or differences of opinion arise?
A ‘mediator’ is not just the name of a profession – it is a crucial role in life and society. However, this role is not reserved only for professionals. It is possible that all human beings on this planet can acquire the skill to mediate.
If you spend time with children, friends, colleagues, or in any kind of meeting or gathering, then you surely have some mediation skills already. It is a fundamental social skill.
Conflict can come in many forms, not just when two or more people shout at each other. There are many scales (small to large) of challenges, misunderstandings, tensions, and unspoken frustration whenever there is cooperation between people.
CNVC Certified Trainer, Yoram Mosenzon has a vision… he sees mediation as a basic life skill that could be taught in schools starting at the age of three. He dreams of a world where all human beings have mediation skills to support understanding, cooperation, and connection when conflicts arise.
Mediation as a practice in daily life is based on the assumption that the structure of two is not enough. When two people are stimulated they are less available to empathize, to see the beauty in one another. The mediator is simply a third party who is not stimulated and has the skills to help facilitate connection, cooperation, and creativity to discover and meet everyone’s needs.
