RAV Webinar Recording: Humanistic Mediation and Viking Mediation. Presented by Greg Rooney

$50.00 inc. GST

This pre-recorded webinar runs for 1.5 hours and can be purchased online and accessed at any time.

In this video, Greg Rooney examines the culture of family mediation in France and Denmark with a focus on the Humanistic Mediation approach (France) and the Viking Mediation approach (Denmark).

He explores how underneath these differing approaches is the challenge of dealing with the head and the heart and the “intellectual and emotional” – within mediation.

This webinar video examines:

  • developing an understanding of the challenges and advantages of the Humanistic Mediation approach developed in France.
  • understanding the more directive Viking Mediation approach developed in Denmark.
  • how to analyse an outline of complexity theory and how it applies to the role of the mediator in family mediation.
  • understanding the importance of the mediator interacting with the parties rather than analysing their behaviour.
  • understanding the importance of the mediation intake session.

Greg Rooney has been a practicing mediator in Australia since 1991. He has mediated face-to-face mediations between religious leaders and individual victims of sexual abuse in the Catholic, Anglican and Protestants religions in Australia as well as abuse within the Australian Defence Forces. Greg worked as a family and child mediator with Relationships Australia Queensland from 1998 to 2001. He recently retired as a director of the Mediator Standards Board. Greg has for the last eight years co-facilitated annual mediation retreats in Tuscany, Italy.
