Unconditional positive regard is the love we receive from other people for who we are as a person, regardless of our faults. It is a concept in client-centred therapy, which was created by Carl Rogers. Carl Rogers considered UPR as one of three conditions necessary for positive change, the other two being Empathy and Genuineness. This is a concept important in Mediation as it also encourages us to see parties in a positive way: worthy of the mediator’s support and capable of finding their own solutions to a conflict situation through empowerment. The UPR approach incorporates elements common to mediation such as:
  • A non judgemental attitude
  • Warmth
  • Caring
  • Acceptance
