Resolution Institute is always pleased to promote new books that we consider of value to our members, often through our newsletter or other digital communications. In 2018, three of our members have authored DR books. Resolution Institute is pleased to take the opportunity of our Annual General Meeting, to hold an accompanying event to turn the spotlight onto these significant additions to the dispute resolution library.

This thoroughly revised edition captures a wide range of new developments in family mediation and addresses issues including power and control, family violence, the parties’ motivations, and self-determination capacity.
