In family and child mediation, supervision is often referred to as a consultative process, usually between a ‘more’ experienced and knowledgeable mediator and a ‘less’ experienced and knowledgeable mediator. The purpose of such consultation is manifold; however the main goals are to offer parties using mediation the best possible practice expertise by supporting the mediator, and to monitor quality assurance.
