Mediators often find themselves facilitating challenging and complex conversations in a context of broken trust. It has been asked if it is possible to negotiate with someone where there is a breakdown in, or absence of trust. Trust is a complex notion.


At the conclusion of the training, participants will be able to:

  • Identify a structure for assessing and understanding different types of trust.
  • List key attributes of trusting relationships.
  • Define strategies for “negotiating” this trust and reaching agreements on actions by which parties might rebuild trust.
