‘Mediating Ethical Dilemmas: Learning from ‘Hard Cases’
Ethical codes for mediators tend to be straightforward: real life mediation is the opposite. Mediators working with family conflict often find themselves facing difficult or unclear choices for which Codes of Conduct provide little guidance. One prominent writer suggests that mediating ethically requires the ‘constant generation of internal norms appropriate for a specific mediation and set of parties.’ This training event will consider real-life dilemmas faced by family mediators and build a framework for ethical practice. Drawing on codes of ethics from other jurisdictions and professions the day will allow practitioners to reflect afresh on some of mediation’s core principles and their application.
Charlie Irvine trained as a family mediator in 1993. His practice now includes workplace, commercial, family and professional complaints. He has a keen interest in the academic development of mediation and in 2007 he completed the MSc in Conflict Resolution and Mediation Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London. In 2010 he wrote and delivered University of Strathclyde’s new Masters programme in Mediation and Conflict Resolution and he continues to deliver training in both mediation and conflict skills. He has written a number of articles on the subject of mediation (available from http://ssrn.com/author=873941 )including an examination of the values underpinning the discipline. He is currently Chair of the Scottish Mediation Network and Visiting Professor at Strathclyde Law School.
