This week’s episode of the Mediator Academy‘s weekly video ‘This Week In Mediation’, presented by Professor Nadja Alexander and Aled Davies, features the German National Mediation Association, the Bundesverband Mediation – with highlights from their annual congress in Dresden and a look at new and emerging mediation models.
The conference also focused on the role of mediation in relation to very political themes such as migration and integration.One interesting initiative that is proving to be very successful involves enrolling members of the migrant community on a one and half year mediation training programme. The episode examines why this is such a successful initiative and how they increase engagement in the mediation process.
For the final piece of mediation news the hosts travel across the pond to analyse a decision from the Appeal Court of Massachusetts which held that mediation remains confidential even if the parties have been up to all sorts of shenanigans! All this and more coming up in the show.
