The mediator's role in agreement and closure

This webinar will explore the obligations on the mediator in this context and provide guidelines to assist mediators in meeting these obligations within a facilitative model. Anne and Anna will share guidance and case studies unpacking three overarching themes of: self-determination, reality testing and risk management.

This webinar is aimed primarily at Mediators who don’t have a legal background. Contexts where lawyers are present will be considered as well as situations where the parties engage in mediation without their lawyer present. The webinar will set 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.
