It has been an exciting couple of months for the DRC with a number of important program and Centre developments. We are delighted to welcome Robyn Hooworth to the Centre as a Clinical Senior Teaching Fellow to assist us as lead trainer.

The Centre is exploring a number of new short course options – including short courses on mediation advocacy, property settlement, evaluative mediation, workplace bullying and restorative justice.

Centre members continue to present their research at conferences and symposia, and the Centre is working on enhancing its research strategy. Current works in progress include: former director Laurence Boulle and Centre co-director Rachael Field’s work on a new mediation text that builds on Laurence’s ground-breaking three editions of Mediation – Principles Process Practice. That work should be available in the second half of 2018. An exciting new DR publication opportunity with the Australian Journal of Clinical Education is also being led by Centre-member Associate Professor Bobette Wolski.
