9:45 Improving your Practice Through Introspection and Dialogue? You be the Judge!
This panel will discuss the issues that are uppermost in the minds of today’s mediators including:
What is your style as a mediator, and do you need more than one?
When, if ever, should you be evaluative and of what?
Does mediation always require a rational approach? What do you do with emotion?
How much does a mediator need to know about mental health?
How much expertise does a mediator need in the content of a conflict (as opposed to expertise in the process of mediation)?
So I’m doing mediation: what defines a mediation process, as compared to any other dispute resolution process?”
Is mediation a western cultural construct, and is this okay in a multicultural world?”
