This workshop explores the considerations involved in mediating when parties are suffering from mental health issues in order to help the mediator get the best possible outcomes for parties, whilst protecting the integrity of mediation, and the mediator.
The issues of mediators assessing parties’ capacity for mediation are also addressed. Delegates also look at the core values of inclusivity and self-determination, including reflection on personal hooks, triggers, blocks and barriers and what we need as mediating professionals in this context. We will also look at the practical tools, techniques and interventions to facilitate mediating with mental health more effectively, with a variety of real-life (anonymised) examples, from both the trainer and the delegates.
