The arrival of winter signals the seasonal adjustment to our routines. Add to this the fall out and resounding economic uncertainty COVID-19 has delivered there is no doubt Winter 2020 will test our mental resilience, our empathy and our compassion, in ways we may not have experienced before.

As mediators we meet people when they are stuck in challenging situations which stretch their ability to be patient, reasonable and empathetic. Our role as mediators is to design processes which facilitate their capacity to participate in mediation and in this way to provide the opportunity for them to move forward.

Reflections on a mediation during the COVID-19 lockdown.

During the unprecedented world of COVID-19, we all must adapt in innumerable ways.  Mediation can and does do this. I was asked to mediate a matter on an urgent basis on day two of lockdown.
