Scottish Mediation and Scottish Community Mediation Centre are delighted to be working in partnership to offer this CPD which will facilitated by Ian McDonough (see biography below).
Shuttle mediation has often been eclipsed by the more familiar technique of face to face mediation. Despite this, it continues to be a widely-used process in the resolution of disputes, particularly in the fields of neighbour and commercial mediation.
What results can we reasonably expect from shuttle mediation? What are the similarities and differences between shuttle and face to face work? Are there specific techniques we should be deploying? What are the pitfalls, and what can mediators do to overcome them?
This interactive three-hour session will explore these issues and suggest a possible framework for undertaking shuttle mediation.
