If you are interested in this topic, you may find useful to watch our May 25, 2013  interview with Sabine Walsh, a certified International mediator and member of the European Network of International Family Mediators. During that 30-min interview, we talked about :

  • How mediation of international parental child abduction cases works in Europe
  • The comediation model used for those mediations
  • How parents can find qualified mediators in their European country
  • Where other mediators, who are interested to mediate those cases, can get some specialized training
  • What was discussed during the May 18, 2013 conference “Mediation in Cases of International Family Conflict and Child Abduction” held in Galway, Ireland
  • How online mediation can allow parents to participate in mediation, safely, conveniently, and  inexpensively – without having to travel to another country
  • The upcoming online mediation simulations that we’ll run and video record in our Virtual Mediation Lab, to show parents around the world what (online) mediation means and how it works
