Abstract

Co-mediation exists as a method of working that can be very practical in a wide variety of circumstances. Some would argue co-mediation is the best practice method, while others would say it is unnecessary to involve two mediators. My original training as a mediator in 2002 was in a comediation method with the NSW Community Justice Centre. I found it to be a great way of working for several reasons. When I started working as a Family Dispute Resolution Practitioner (‘FDRP’) in 2007, a solo mediation method was the standard practice in my workplace, and comediation was an option only where the practitioner assessed that there was a need for two mediators. Over fourteen years I have experienced many ways of working within co-mediation methods. Some have been very good and some have not worked so well.
