In practice, mediators frequently encounter situations that require tough decisions. What should a mediator do when personal or professional values are challenged? Professional codes of conduct that govern the mediator can sometimes conflict. How does a mediator sort through the issues and decide what to do? When should clients be referred? When should the mediator terminate the mediation? What happens when the decision isn't clear? This course will help you clarify how principles contained in professional codes of conduct interact with the real-world application of ethical behaviour during the practice of mediation. Learners will use three codes of conduct: two national (ADRIC, FMC) and that of Mediate BC. Learners situated in other jurisdictions may use appropriate codes of conduct from their area.
