MEDIARE is a pioneer organization based in Rio de Janeiro and dedicated to practicing and teaching Conflict Mediation. Since it was founded, in 1997, it has already trained a Multidisciplinary Panel of experts dedicated to the consensual nature of dialogue, especially, Mediation.

• Permanent Improvement – To seek continuing education is a requirement to integrate MEDIARE`s Mediator Panel. It is promoted by monthly study groups encounters (General and Specific groups) coordinated by selected members of each thematic sector: Civil, Communities, Business, Family Business, Family and Probate, School, Environmental, Public Policies, Practices Collaborative, IT, Intellectual Property and Art and Culture.

Participation in the General Study Groups is franchised to students and mediation professionals associated with the MEDIARE Institute. The agenda alternates specific topics dedicated to Conflict Mediation as well as issues regarding other fields such as sociology anthropology, philosophy, politics, communication and among other matters that may be linked to dialogue process and decision-making based on consensus.

• The Thematic Study Groups are dedicated to their specific subjects, with the purpose of improving mediators in each area.

• The Supervisors of the MEDIARE’s Mediator Training program (Real Supervised Practice) meet fortnightly, both to share situations experienced in teaching practice and reading.

• Professionals, who complete their Mediation training program, are invited to join Medicare’s Institute Bank of Hours, which regards the voluntary offering of hours for the care of real social nature cases.
