About the course

This Oxford Peer Mediation for Police Organisations training course will enable the participants to become peer workplace mediators and deal with conflict, grievances, and other employee disputes in their workplace. Up to 30-40% of a typical Senior Officer or Manager's time can be spent dealing with conflict. Senior staff report spending up to 20% of their time in legal activities involving issues such as harassment and dismissal. This will provide the participants with a thorough understanding of peer workplace mediation, methods, and practices.

Mediation is generally defined as the intervention in a negotiation or a conflict of an acceptable third party who has limited decision-making power, who assists the involved parties to reach voluntarily a mutually acceptable settlement of the issues in a dispute. In addition to addressing the substantive issues, mediation may also establish, strengthen, or terminate the relationships between parties in a manner that minimises psychological harm. Essentially, mediation is a dialogue or negotiation with the involvement of a third party.
