The UWA Mediation Clinic is dedicated to providing excellence in the practice, research and teaching of mediation.

Rather than a one-size-fits-all approach, we tailor our dispute resolution process to your individual circumstances. We are determined to continue to learn as a team, to offer you the best in mediation service. Our ultimate aim is to assist you to resolve your conflict or dispute.

We work continuously to ensure we train our mediators to use an evidence-base to their practice to ensure they provide the process that is most likely to work for you in your situation. We work from a team-based mentalising approach, which means that we are all working to understand the needs of each client and his or her unique experience. It is a main priority within this process to ensure the service encourages future-focused self-determination and promotes harmony.

After meeting with you to formulate an individual plan, clinic staff will approach the other people involved in the conflict or dispute and meet with them to plan for their participation in the mediation process. Staff will then arrange a time that is mutually acceptable to all the parties to conduct the mediation. In some cases, more than one session will be required. Clinic staff will discuss this with you as the need arises and keep you informed at all times.

The UWA Mediation Clinic aims to provide options as to the best way to resolve conflicts. We work with a wide network of national and international specialists including, lawyers, barristers, practitioners and researchers from a variety of professional backgrounds to assist us with this.

Our core mission is clear: We work with our clients on both individual and team-orientated bases. Through this tailored approach, we aim to assist the communities in which we live and work to thrive. We hope that you will take this opportunity to assist the UWA Mediation Clinic in its mission to resolve, research and understand conflict.
