I particularly liked your explanation of how a mediation can be a great way to reach an understanding that an agreement is not desirable – this can be a taboo topic but important for mediators to be unbiased and support self-determination rather than try to push an agreement.

Your article on expectations from Mediation
Thank you. I believe that this message needs to be reinforced. I put emphasis on this theme when teaching and training Mediation/ADRs in the Course (Post Graduate: Conflict & Dispute Resolution Studies) I founded in Trinity College Dublin in 2000. Much appreciated tone of wisdom and authority.

This article offers a much needed conversation around all the possible outcomes in mediation, including the value in certain contexts of no agreement. On a personal level as a mediator, it expands my own thinking. Thank you, Kathy Goodman

A really thoughtful article which all mediators would do well to read. Thanks.
