About the webinar:

In the three years since FDR first commenced, much has been learned about how to get the best out of the allocated mediation time. There are still challenging aspects such as how to incorporate the voice of the child and convening mediations involving parties of different cultures. These are the “big ticket” items and the three ADROs are offering opportunities to workshop these - click HERE for more info. But there are other issues that are not so obviously challenging but where experience has much to teach us. We have selected three of those topics – using the increased hours now allowed for mediation, the best use of separate meetings and drafting better agreements, for this webinar.

After this webinar you will be able to:

  • Identify ways in which the increased publicly-funded “12 hours” can be best used.
  • Recognise how to get the best out of separate meetings both before and during joint sessions in a mediation.
  • Reflect on your current practice in drawing up agreements and how this might be enhanced.
  • Use what our experienced presenters have discussed and start to apply it to your future mediations.

The presenters:

Rachael Dewar - Rachael Dewar Law, Wellington
Amy Oberkircher - Mediator, Auckland
