Useful videos of interviews with mediators

I just discovered this website, which includes interviews with experienced mediators on a variety of topics (and also has written transcripts of all interviews).  A very interesting tool for new and experienced mediators, and also trainers.

  1. Hello Samantha – many thanks for sharing the link to Mediator Academy. I’m on a bit of a mission to make mediation more popular and accessible than Facebook, a worthy mission I feel!

    I’m always looking for thought leaders to interview on various aspects relating to mediation and conflict resolution, so if any of your contributors or readers would like to propose potential candidates for me to interview I would be very grateful.

    Just thought I’d mention that there’s a wonderful inspiring interview with Australian mediator Joanna Kalowski – here’s the link: Mediator Academy Interview with Joanna Kalowski
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Thanks again
