Skills session: Mediating effectively in a ‘shuttle’ process
Mediating by way of a shuttle process is common place in many disputes, the difficulty is that sometimes in the shuttle process, the mediation process and its skills are transformed into another type of process. This seminar is designed to identify the pitfalls of shuttle mediation including how confidentiality is dealt with and acknowledgement from one party to another can be communicated to other party in an effective way. The seminar will also look at ways that shuttle mediation can be used effectively for different disputes.
The seminar is designed to give the participants a structure and skills to assist them if they practise in shuttle mediation.
The session will be given by Linda Kochanski (Consultant Trainer with Australian Mediation Association)
