Mediation always revolves around the stories that the parties bring into the room. Reflecting on where these stories come from, how they get used – and most importantly, how they might be open to change – is at the heart of the work we do. Exploring some of the thinking behind the Narrative school of mediation is a useful way to deepen our understanding, while simultaneously adding to the available tools and interventions we can bring to our practice.
- To introduce some core ideas drawn from Narrative Mediation
- To understand how ‘narratives’ shape behaviours not only of parties, but also of practitioners.
- To explore some practical techniques drawn from Narrative Mediation that we might incorporate into our own work
This session will also include an informative article on Narrative Mediation by John Winslade & Gerard Monk that will be sent out prior to the session.
