Mediation, offering a multidimensional and structured approach to dispute resolution, was introduced to me during a theoretical unit in dispute resolution at the University of Notre Dame, Australia. Supported by Boulle’s text Mediation: Principles, Process, Practice, the unit covered several dimensions of the mediation process: both applied and practical, through simulations and topical case studies; and theoretical, through conflict psychology and philosophy. The manner in which the principles and their application were presented reflected their integration.
