Webinar: Starting Online Family Video Mediation

Back to events

This webinar discussion explores online video family mediation.

11th May 2020 (3pm-5pm)

The past couple of months have driven us to different ways of working as family mediators.

This webinar discussion explores online video family mediation.

  • How can we keep working and safeguard all involved in the mediation process?
  • Are we struggling to grapple with the technology of online video conferencing?
  • Are we waiting for all of this to blow over and stay with the traditional ways or are there opportunities for the future in new ways of working?

This is an opportunity to hear from experienced mediators who have been working with online video family mediation for many years.

Our discussion will cover the basics of the technology involved as well as the nuts and bolts of client care.

Join us for a conversation about different practices, sharing ideas and in the “new normal”.
