Redefining Practice: Lessons Learned as a Researcher and Mediator

Sherrill Hayes PhD, Conflict Resolution Program, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA. In this article, Sherrill Hayes reports on the insights she gained training as a mediator in the UK and how they have influenced her practice on return to the USA. There are some important differences relating to professional background (legal and non-legal), practice setting (not-for-profit and for-profit), amount of mediation experience and, in some cases, gender of the mediator. Where differences exist, they often relate to the use of very specific mediation interventions, in many instances for a similar purpose. These different practices are reported in detail and the author goes on to look at how policies affect practices, and vice versa. For the full article see September [2007] Fam Law.
