National Mediation Conference 2016



The bi-annual National Mediation conference is being held at the Gold Coast with pre-conference workshops beginning on Sunday 11 September.  The conference itself runs from Monday 12 September to Wednesday 13 September and there is also a Dispute Resolution Research Forum being held at Bond University on Thursday 14 September.  A number of members from the Australian Dispute Resolution Research Network will be presenting aspects of their research (a copy of the program can be found here):

Susan Armstrong – A session on “Family Dispute Resolution in multicultural and multifaith Australia – What does it mean for Australian Muslims?

Pauline Collins – A member of the organising Committee for the conference

Jon Crowe – A plenary session on “Two Models of Mediation Ethics”

Kathy Douglas – A session on “Disputes in vertical living: Facilitating conflict resolution”

Sue Douglas – A session on “Power in mediation”

Rachael Field – A session on “Family violence: Innovations for the next decade”

Danielle Hutchinson and Emma-May Litchfield – A session on “The future of dispute resolution: A global perspective”

Lola Akin Ojelabi – A session on “Mediator attitudes toward confidentiality and public interest/policy issues: Responses from Australian and US (Californian) mediators”

Olivia Rundle – A session on “Including trans, gender diverse, intersex and/or non-heterosexual people in mediation service delivery”

Bobette Wolski – A session on “The revised NMAS Practice Standards: Mind the gaps”

This list does not include some presentations that are being delivered on the Research Forum Day, but it goes without saying that the Netowrk is also well represented at the forum.  If you are a member of the Network and I have inadvertantly left a session of yours off this list, please let me know ( and I will add your session to the list.
