Course Mediation at the Court of Protection for Mediators


This course is aimed at practitioners who already have a mediation qualification. It aims to alert them to the key issues when running a mediation involving vulnerable adults or where adults lack mental capacity to decide for themselves. 

Mediations with vulnerable adults or with someone who lacks capacity are mostly about safeguarding and also ensuring decision-making is taken by an authorised person in the Donor/P's best interests. Where someone lacks capacity, there is the necessity to closely follow the Mental Capacity Act and ensure their involvement in the mediation process. 

The course is based on the work conducted by Braun [2013] who amalgamated several pieces of research on training mediators; ACR Training (2002), Ward (2009) and EGN Report (2012) to produce a training template. The day ends by going through a vulnerable adult mediation. 

The course aims to examine the following topics:

  • The psychology of decision-making in later life
  • Vulnerable Adult Mediations law
  • Theories of Ageing 
  • Understanding mental capacity
  • Recognising abuse 
  • Mediation ethics
  • Running a vulnerable adult mediation
