The Mediation Times

Welcome to The Mediation Times, a brand new blog from UK commercial mediator Amanda Bucklow which she describes as a 'new blog for events, articles and opinions'.

Although I couldn't immediately see how to do it, one of the innovative aspects of this blog is that experienced mediators can find the profiles of 'willing assistants' - and new mediators themselves can upload a profile.

The latest post links to a video of Prof Chris Guthrie giving the Saltman Lecture at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Misjudging: Why Disputants Are Better Off in Consensual Processes than in Litigation.

Amanda is also the author of the first professional research project into the competencies of UK mediators.

Geoff, thanks as always for your vigilance in spotting new ADR blogs!

Since this is a Wordpress blog, I'm guessing that the way to create a profile on this blog and to become an assistant there, you probably do the following. To create a profile, it looks like you register by clicking on the "Register" link in the left sidebar and set up an account on that blog. A password will be emailed to you. After that you'll have the opportunity to create a profile.

Cheers,
Diane
