Description

This subject examines the development of emerging mediation models, their adaptations for specific contexts and the advanced skills that are required for practitioners to conduct these often sophisticated processes. The subject builds on the introductory theory and practice of mediation presented in the prerequisite subjects (Dispute Resolution 79771 and Mediation Practice 78029). The subject is taught in a three-day intensive mode to develop advanced skills as professional advocates in complex mediations. With opportunities in selected exercises to develop skills and reflective practice, students receive specific feedback from experts and colleagues. Experienced mediators and expert practitioners work with students to build skills, strategies, and techniques to successfully and competently engage and analyse across a range of mediation models including the ‘Understanding’ model developed by Harvard Law School and the New York Center for Mediation. Through complex mediation simulations, debriefs, and interactive lectures with experienced mediators, students develop advanced mediations skills for complex mediations. By successively building on previous skills, students develop the ability to critically engage and analyse a range of mediation models and techniques.
