On demand | Webinar | The mediator's role in agreement and closure

with Anna Quinn and Anne Sutherland-Kelly

On demand | Online

Purchase this webinar to explore the obligations on the mediator in this context and provided guidelines to assist mediators in meeting these obligations within a facilitative model.

"Anne and Anna shared guidance and case studies unpacking three overarching themes of: self-determination, reality testing and risk management."

This webinar was aimed primarily at Mediators who don’t have a legal background. Contexts where lawyers are present were considered as well as situations where the parties engage in mediation without their lawyer present. The webinar sets out to offer process advice but not legal advice.

Participants will leave with guidelines to assist them with the challenges involved in facilitating the parties in the agreement and closure phases of the process.

We continue to consult with the given presenter as to whether extended availability is possible. We are therefore not able to guarantee access beyond 3 months.
