Co-mediate (6) Sessions:
Trainees comply with schedule for participation in six actual sessions with the assistance and supervision of a mentor. Each co-mediation session is followed by a period of debriefing between the trainee and the mentor. At times, the Director of Mediation is also included in the debriefing.
After the completion of the required co-mediation sessions, the mentor informs the Director of Mediation whether or not the trainee is ready for evaluation as a solo mediator, or if he or she should continue co-mediating for a bit longer.
