In the early phases of the Anglo-American mediation movement, certain models were promoted in theory and training and applied in practice. The models differed, depending on the background of the trainers/mediators, the cultural context and the jurisdiction in which the training and practice took place. In the mediation world of shared understandings and collaboration, there was often competition and sometimes even conflict among advocates of the various theories, models, approaches and styles.
