A Guide to Effective Communication for Conflict Resolution introduces the 9 Principles that are also described on this site to help the reader develop a 'mindfulness' in relation to their communication in a way that supports the resolution of conflict. In this book
Alan shares his observations and learnings from working as a Mediator and Conflict Coach with regard to the ways that people become stuck in unresolved conflict but also how they go on to create more effective ways forward in their difficult situations.
"I think you put together so well all the essential components of
conflict transformation in a way which people can relate to and
understand. A brilliant book and I will recommend it to everyone."

Please make any comments below or on the youtube video(s) themselves if you transfer to youtube to watch them.
The London Mediation Training course is a 6-day course spread over 2 x 3-day sessions which uses an experiential training approach to learning the skills involving individual, pair, group work as well as role plays. The focus is on continuous reflective learning and improvement so that this approach can be continued beyond the course and so that the course is not seen as the 'end point' but the starting point of the journey of continuous learning and development that is being a Mediator.
CAOS also has a 'Learning Community of Mediators and Conflict Coaches' which come together via Skype for peer support sessions once a month. Individual mentoring and support for both mediation practice and mediation business development is also available post-training.
