Course Mediation at the Court of Protection for Non-Mediators


This course is aimed at practitioners who are not themselves mediators, but practice in areas involving elderly clients and individuals lacking mental capacity. The course aims to alert them to when a vulnerable adult mediation may be suitable, what happens at a vulnerable adult mediation, together with their involvement in the process.

Mediations with vulnerable adults or with someone who lacks capacity are mostly about protecting a vulnerable adult’s interests 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.

This half-day 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 course will aim to cover the following topics:

  • Varieties of elder mediation
  • Pre-mediation interviews
  • Party and family dynamics
  • Mediating with and without mental capacity
  • Applying the Mental Capacity Act 2005 
  • Spotting elder abuse
  • Managing vulnerable adults’ needs
