Behind the wheel

Abstract

Extract:

There is a disconcerting robustness about Fisher and Brandon’s description of family mediation as a journey whereby ‘the mediator is the driver of the process, steering the car in which the parties are seated … turning the steering wheel to keep the car on track … continually monitoring the progress of the car, making adjustments as needed’ (p 165). Carefully stowed in the boot are their ‘mediator kits’ containing the essential brown paper bag — a preventative measure in case a client starts to hyperventilate (p 212)!
