International Arbitration Centre is the accreditation body for the family mediators under the pilot scheme. The outcome of the scheme confirms 79.9% success rate for full or partial agreement between the parties through the process of mediation.

resolution. a) Partnering is a way to establish common goals, help the team to build new relationships that are constructive to the common interests of the parties and to minimize waste, inefficiencies and conflict. b) Dispute Resolution Advisors (DRA) are normally experts in the field to help the parties to identify contractual issues early and process them through to agreed conclusions. The DRA need to display some mediation skills. The benefits include less disputes, less budgetary surprises and smoother cash flow for the parties throughout the contractual relationship. E. Other Forms of Skilled Helpers in the Dispute Resolution Process In other intra-personal or inter-personal conflicts such as those in family, commercial/corporate as well as community disputes, there are other forms of neutrals that will assist the parties to prevent or resolve disputes/conflicts or facilitate decision making process. a) Facilitation is a process whereby an independent outsider becomes involved in a problem by giving assistance to the parties in dispute through a process of decision-making without making any binding decisions for the parties. The wide range of matters that a facilitator may contribute include information gathering and giving, fact finding, holding conferences for multi-parties disputes and public meetings, establishing voting criteria and private consultations. Facilitators are experts in communication, negotiation and mediation skills. They may or may not be content experts. Like mediation, facilitation is process-oriented and both are facilitated negotiations that can be used for multi-parties and multi-purposes including dispute resolution and problem defining. It is less structured, more flexible and open-ended than mediation and may be applied in a wider range of circumstances and situations e.g. town planning, land-use and environmental matters as well as employment and organisational situations where group cohesion, relationship and team building are important goals.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
