ARTICLES

Kenneth F. Dunham, Practical Considerations in Mediation Training: Should Mediators Be Trained to Adapt to the Circumstances of Each Case?, 11 Appalachian J. L. 185 (2012).
This article explores the concepts of both facilitative and evaluative mediation. The author argues that while mediation was at one time purely facilitative, over time mediators have become more open to using directive and evaluative mediation tactics. The article concludes that mediators should be trained in both facilitative and evaluative and directive techniques.

Douglas N. Frenkel & James H. Stark, The Practice of Mediation: A Video-Integrated Text  (2012).
This teaching tool is uniquely integrative by combining both a textual analysis of the mediation process with a six-hour DVD that illustrates the various stages of the mediation process. These simulations, a child custody case, a small claims consumer dispute, and a premises liability suit, were specifically selected for their varied contexts and dispute characteristics. The simulations are illustrative of a variety of problems and behaviors mediators may encounter.
