Stevenson, Marion.
June 4, 2015

Source: (2000) In Mediation in Context, ed. Marian Liebmann, 39-52. With an introduction by Marian Liebmann. London: Jessica Kingsley Publishers.

Observing that family mediation attempts to assist in cases of family breakdown, Stevenson examines family mediation in the United Kingdom. Aspects covered include the legislative background to family mediation and the development of family mediation services. The paper also presents principles and assumptions in family mediation, a discussion of the kind of expertise a family mediator should have, and a description of the mediation process. Case examples illustrate principles and practices of family mediation.
