For group mediations with large groups (more than 12 participants), the best way to approach the mediation is discussed with the mediator(s) beforehand. For example, if practical and necessary, partial mediation (meetings with a portion of the group) may be organised.
Confidentiality and feedback
Agreements on confidentiality are made with group. Feedback is given to the client based on this. Generally, feedback is provided on the main substantive elements: the issues examined and the outcomes. The personal interventions in the group mediation remain confidential.
Group mediation facilities
All the necessary facilities (flip-over charts, whiteboards, projectors, coffee, tea and water) are present at the meeting locations. If the group mediation occurs on site at the client, the client will, in consultation, take care of the facilities. The arrangement of the meeting room is especially important: We make sure that the participants can see each other, with the mediators positioned appropriately. We also ensure, of course, that the participants have been properly informed in advance.
