Advanced Mediation

This training is designed to develop your mediation skills in more difficult conflicts that may have more parties and issues, with more intensity and complexity. Time is devoted to dealing with common ‘what next?!’ dilemmas and the role plays in this training involve extended opportunity to develop your mediation skills using the distinctively biblically based framework that distinguishes this training from secular approaches.

Please note: this course requires having done the PeaceWise training up to Mediation level (having completed Deeper into Conflict Coaching is also highly desirable).

Bruce Burgess

Bruce Burgess is the National Director of PeaceWise and is Australia’s first Certified Christian ConciliatorTM. He holds degrees in Arts, Law, Christian Studies and Theology and is an international conference speaker. Bruce’s peacemaking work has led him to become involved in teaching and working with schools, workplace disputes, church and para-church based conflict, and victim-offender cases. Bruce has a passion for seeing both adults and kids’ lives transformed by the power of the gospel of peace, for building cultures of peace and for seeing God break through to repair, restore and sustain healthy relationships.  Bruce is married to Helen and they have two high school aged kids.   Bruce constantly thanks God for being the amazing God of peace that he is, who has provided so much help, wisdom and grace for living life - which is especially needed in the cauldron of teenage parenting!

John Irvin

From being an entrenched conflict-avoider, God reshaped John's heart and attitude to what is true peace back in 2007. Now in addition to extensive ministry experience, he has had the privilege of being trained in Biblical reconciliation here and overseas, and has been given the responsibility to regularly put this into practice, primarily within Presbyterian churches. John’s heart now resonates for peacemaking and bringing reconciliation to strained and shattered relationships.
