Introduction

FDR mediation has come a long way since its introduction in 2014. There has not been as much opportunity for mediators to hone their skills due to the slow uptake by parties and the reluctance of Courts and lawyer to refer clients for mediation. However suppliers and mediators have been refining the process and developing best practice skills for the benefit of those taking part.

The introduction of the 12-hour model on 1 December 2016 by the MOJ provides a new more flexible approach to FDR. Hopefully this will allow mediators more flexibility to work with parties in a way that is more tailored to their needs. It should also enable timely preparatory coaching/counselling and referral back to these services by mediators for additional support during the mediation process. Up until now mediators have worked independently of the pre-mediation counsellors. The new model envisages them working more closely together to assist parties to reach agreement. (Continued...)
