LAW3MST

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In LAW1DR, students were introduced to a staged, facilitative model of mediation that is fairly generic to the field. In this unit, students will consider how this mediation model differs to approaches known as Transformative Mediation and Restorative Practices. Students will study the theories and principles underpinning conflict transformation and restorative practices, the contexts in which these approaches operate, as well as learn how to apply some of these practices in role-plays. Students will acquire competence in the particular micro-skills and case management assessments which will also enhance their general communication skills and their practice in DR and conflict transformation.
