Webinar recording | Elder mediation in the retirement village context
with Dale Bagshaw, Margaret Halsmith and Anet Kate
pre-recorded | Online
Very interesting, very relevant for any elder interaction. Thank you!
The first in a series on elder mediation run in association with EMAN (Elder Medation Australasian Network), includes three presenters who first of all briefly defined elder mediation and how it differs from other forms of mediation, then discussed the nature of mediation in the retirement village context, the issues and challenges that elder mediators face and the value of having specific training and certification as an elder mediator in this context.
