The new edition of Family Mediation: Theory and Practice incorporates the many new developments in the field since its original publication in 2009. This edition includes a new chapter, “Unrepresented Parties and Mediation”, exploring the impact of the vast number of pro se litigants on the family mediation process. Another new chapter, “Beyond Mediation: Collaborative Practice and Other Forms of ADR in Family Law”, reflects the expanding options for family dispute resolution since our first edition. The new edition also includes an updated and expanded statutory appendix featuring representative changes in court based mediation rules and statutes, including new approaches to courts’ treatment of domestic violence cases in family mediation as well as new rules on confidentiality and mediator qualifications and training. The remaining chapters are wholly revised and updated, including additional materials on mediating financial issues, domestic violence and mediation, mediator neutrality, and power differentials. A teacher’s manual with new seminar plans, exam questions and role plays will be available in September, 2015.
