Presented by Sarah Blake
Drawing on over 20 years of experience working in remote and cross-cultural landscapes, Sarah Blake will explore with you a case study on some of the challenges of complex, multi-party, whole-of-community mediations.
In cross cultural settings, it is important that mediators facilitate decision-making that engages with and respects the cultural norms and systemic needs from multiple perspectives. It is often complex involving many parties, support people, lawyers and mediators all wrestling with being effective in this space. This ethical dimension weaves a curious influence, shaping the mediation process beyond mere formula into something unique.
This presentation draws together such challenges, presenting an opportunity to reflect on issues such as confidentiality, legal protections, power and capacity.
Sarah will share some of her insights into how these challenges have shaped her mainstream practices. As well, Sarah frames the conversation to encourage cross-fertilization across different types of conflict resolution practice, asking about:
• Purpose – what you are doing?
• Legitimate authority – how you are doing it?
• Responsibility – who (you, them and us)?
Sarah will provide a case study ahead of the session to encourage you to engage in the topic and actively participate.

Webinar – Elder Mediation and Screening for Elder Abuse
Elder abuse is an under-researched and hidden problem. It occurs across the spectrum of our society and is often unrecognised, unreported and hard to detect. Some families and/or cultures do not recognise that their behaviour is abusive or label it that way.
The World Health Organisation defines abuse of older people as ‘a single, or repeated action (commission) or lack of appropriate action (omission), occurring within any relationship where there is an expectation of trust which causes harm or distress to an older person. It is a violation of human rights and a significant cause of injury, illness, lost productivity, isolation and despair’.
Elder mediation involves an older adult, or contains issues that have a particular impact on older adults. It is a focused, preventative, respectful process – usually multi-party, multi-issue and intergenerational.
From a human rights perspective, elder mediators must ensure that the voice of the older person is heard, directly or indirectly, and respected. This applies to older people with and without capacity.
Join Associate Professor Dale Bagshaw’s webinar presentation on models of elder mediation, including specific screening tools to:
- assess whether or not the mediator can accommodate for any disabilities, especially those related to capacity, competency and communication
- detect signs and risks of abuse or intimidation of the older person in pre-mediation intake sessions.
