One of the greatest challenges that parents face in child protection mediation (CPM) is to voice their concerns
and negotiate on a relatively equal basis with the other mediation participants. This article considers how imbalances
of power, limited confidentiality protection, and the personal problems that bring parents into the child protection

seeking to conduct CPM in a manner that effectively empowers parents to meaningfully and collaboratively
participate in mediation. (Articles Abstract)
