Relationships Australia’s national team is delighted to announce a free community event that may of interest to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, dispute resolution practitioners, mediators, lawyers, community leaders, restorative practitioners and others. National Native Title Tribunal Member, Helen Shurven will outline some of her experience in mediating native title disputes, including differences between two party and multi-party matters, as well as considering telephone mediation and special considerations that can be taken into account when mediation is not in a face to face context.
Member Shurven will touch on some skills based information, including the process of co-mediation, as well as tips and traps for mediators and party advisors. Member Shurven will reflect on mediated outcomes and contrast the process of agreement-making through mediation with her experience in making arbitral decisions that are final and binding on all parties.
