Domestic Abuse Issues in Mediation(For Kentucky Mediators)
Goals for Program
This program will focus on the question, “When, if ever, is mediation
appropriate in cases where domestic abuse is present?” It
will also address, in lecture, role play, discussion and exercises, how
to structure a safe process and safely terminate mediation when
mediation is deemed appropriate.
This is one of the most controversial topics in the field of family
mediation. To thoroughly address this question, mediators
must have a solid understanding of domestic abuse. Therefore,
I this program we will cover the following topics:
Overview of Domestic Abuse
- The impact of Domestic Abuse on children
Screening methods to determine appropriateness of mediation
Power issues when mediating these cases
How to structure a safe environment where domestic abuse has been
part of the relationship but mediation is deemed appropriate
How to structure a safe termination if, after screening and beginning
the mediation, the mediator determines that mediation is not appropriate
Best practices for enhancing safety in the session
Best practices for enhancing safety planning in mediated agreements
Qualities and skills of mediators involved in these cases
The first and constant guiding principle of mediation in these cases is:
VIOLENCE IS NEVER MEDIATED.
This program is intended for Kentucky mediators. Kentucky mediators in need of their 4 hours of CME can use this program for those hours.
We also offer ongoing mediation consulting.
