Understanding Family MediationOver the past couple of months, we’ve been collaborating on a project to create a prezi called ‘Understanding Family Mediation‘ to mark the end of National Family Dispute Resolution week (Nov 25-29th). It’s purpose is to provide a greater understanding of family mediation as an alternative to court.

Following academic research (Stokoe, 2011; 2013a; 2013b) on barriers to mediation, and feedback from family mediators themselves, it was clear that some elements of the MoJ prezi potentially dissuade people from attending mediation, rather than work to promote it. We set about changing the text and images to use key phrases that will encourage people to attend.

The latest version of the project can be found on YouTube and is designed for embedding on websites to help explain family mediation. YouTube provide an easy way to embed a YouTube player on your website. Simply include the following code onto the HTML section of a page on your website :

<div style=”text-align:center;”> < object width=”425″ height=”350″ data=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash”><param name=”src” value=”” /></object> < /div>

Update 27/6/14

Please note that link needs to be updated to the MoJ adopted version of the video :

<div style=”text-align:center;”> < object width=”425″ height=”350″ data=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash”><param name=”src” value=”” /></object> < /div>

This is definitely not the final version, but a work in progress…

The project was developed by the following partners:
Prof Elizabeth Stokoe – Loughborough University
Dr Frederick Attenborough – Loughborough University
Paul Gadd – Protocol IT Ltd
Euan Lockwood – Kerfdesign

Following on from demonstrations at several family mediation conferences over the past couple of years, we are pleased to announce we are now in a position to sell the PNF product range.

pnf-uboardRather than selling you the product and expecting you to install and get it up and running on your own, we offer support to help develop templates to help you benefit from the technology. Simply plugging the equipment in and connecting to a projector is a good start, however to gain the full benefit of making time with clients more effient you need to develop a strategy and templates for using the technology.

Please contact us for more details.
