'Conflict is a bit like waste. Everyone manages while the pipes stay clear and the bins get collected. When it goes wrong, some are more resilient than others: if you’ve got a compost heap you’ll manage for longer. You may pull together with your neighbors to find a solution. Sometimes there may be no immediate solution. A daily dose of micro-aggressive pollution may accumulate silently until it does irreparable harm. Conflict is easy to generate, but difficult to process.

You could spend your life pursuing specialized accreditation and post-nominal letters. Why pursue a qualification in mediation?

Specialist skill is progressing in almost every domain. Is our ability to process and manage conflict keeping pace with the stresses and complexities of modern, digitally enhanced life? 

As an IT professional and statistician, I reflected on my ability to manage conflict and realized I had very little to go on. I had drifted out to sea on an air mattress without really knowing how to swim. 

Lord Bingham described mediation as "in very many ways the best means of resolving civil disputes." In a mutually acceptable compromise, everyone loses a little to move forward and get on. In mediation, the sum is greater than the parts.

The MCIArb course will provide you with the toolbox to manage the mediation of a dispute. It is taught and examined by seasoned experts. The digitally-enhanced Socratic method is subtle and devastatingly effective. The idea is to move from unconscious incompetence to a state of self-critical awareness as a basis for future practice. I highly recommend it.'
