Child Inclusive Mediation (a blog)

When I first used to ask clients contacting me for the first time if they knew what mediation was about then there was often a “not really”.

Thinking about mediation?

I was asked a question the other day about family mediation and it occurred to me that I wasn’t sure there was a blog post with the information in.  I’m quite sure there is a wealth of information on this topic across the blog but I felt it might be helpful to have it in one place.  The question focused on two things: Do you have to be on the same page to try family mediation; and What do you…
