The magic and mystery of mediation



Event Details:

An interactive seminar by three experienced mediators about The Magic and Mystery of Mediation.

There will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and an informal drinks at a venue nearby afterwards.


Mediation is sometimes thought of as a magical process, that enables disputes to be solved, restores broken relationships, and reaches parts that other dispute resolution processes simply cannot reach.


Is this true, and if so how is it achieved? What are the magic ingredients that make mediation effective? And what happens when it doesn't work – is that due to the process, the mediator or the parties? Does mediation succeed because parties want to believe in the magic, or because they are just worn down by alternatives? Are mediators conjurers, helping parties produce solutions out of a hat? How does mediation help solve the mystery of why parties are in dispute?


Listen to three highly experienced mediators talk about their reflections on mediation, drawing on practical experience gained from dealing with hundreds of mediations for parties in a wide variety of areas of dispute, including: the common themes of a successful mediation, the common reasons for failure; different formats and approaches; the roles of the mediator, the advisor and the party.
