It is anticipated that the first findings from the study will be available in late 2014-early 2015.

Good practices with culturally diverse families in family dispute resolution

Susan Armstrong
Family Matters No. 92, 2013

Dispute resolution practitioners should be aware of how culture is embedded in mediation processes and of the cultural values and communication patterns they and the parties bring to the process. This awareness will help them to engage in respectful dialogue about cultural contexts, respond ethically to the cultural power dynamics present in the mediation, and support the control that parties have over the mediation.
