Child Focused Mediation

Child Focused Mediation

Child Focused Mediation is a method of working with parents in dispute resolution forums and education programs, focusing the process on the needs of their children.

In 2006, through the Children in Focus project, Prof. Lawrie Moloney and Prof. Jennifer McIntosh released a DVD and Handbook, documenting their work on Child Focused Mediation, called “Creating Child Focused Dialogues with Separated Parents”.

Lawrie and Jenn are now revising and updating the content of this resource, and hope to make it available in the near future, with full DVD footage. In the meantime, we make available a lecture by Prof. Lawrie Moloney on Child Focused Interventions, from the Children in Focus Program. You can also access an extract from Prof. Jennifer McIntosh’s Parent Education Group in the “For Parents” section of the Children Beyond Dispute.
