It can also be used by trainers to provide more basic information to trainee mediators, thus allowing them more time for practicing the skill in training.

The context of mediation immediately highlights the importance of argumentation as a means to reasonably handle conflict. Argumentation in dispute mediation tackles this topic providing both theoretical insights and detailed empirical argumentative analysis. Its goal is twofold: to explore mediation as a real-life context of argumentation and to show how an increased argumentative awareness could improve conflict resolution. Particular emphasis is accorded to mapping mediation through an interdisciplinary reasoned review of existing accounts. The outline of a conceptual framework of mediation constitutes a solid basis for the study of argumentation in mediation. The argumentative analysis of a corpus of mediation cases, based on the pragma-dialectical account and the Argumentum Model of Topics, shows the mediator’s moves which actually help conflicting parties discuss reasonably. The mediator’s topical potential plays a crucial role in this relation at the levels of issue selection, evoking of cultural-contextual premises and choice of argument schemes.

As a consequence of today's litigious environment in the healthcare industry, physicians must now carefully assess their personal and practice risks as they seek to be indemnified should an event or cause of action occur. This process requires integrated knowledge of the healthcare industrial complex, as well as the rapidly changing insurance industry. Fortunately, Insurance and Risk Management Strategies for Physicians and Advisors confronts the reality that insurance planning in healthcare is decidedly more complex than most other businesses or professions and, in an easy-to-understand manner, explains to physicians and insurance professionals the background, theory, and practicalities of medical risk management and insurance planning. Certified Medical Planner® Dr. David Edward Marcinko and his team of contributing authors go into great depth on the growing range of insurance planning options in order to assist physicians, and their advisors, to choose the "right" course that balances risk, cost, time, outcome as well as his or her own personal risk tolerance life style.

This book provides a comprehensive descriptive and prescriptive treatment of legal counseling, interviewing, and negotiation (including mediation and plea-bargaining). As reflected in the title, the book takes "a practical approach" to these skills, so students can learn specifically how to engage in effective counseling and negotiating. The book also emphasizes pertinent ethical and legal considerations in connection with counseling clients and negotiating settlements. The authors discuss leading "theoretical approaches" to the extent those approaches can be meaningfully applied in practice. The overall effect is to emphasize that blend of theory, practice, ethics, and law that is most meaningful in the sense of having real-life application to effective client representation. The Appendices to the book provide numerous negotiation and mediation, including plea-bargaining, role-plays. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

This latest edition reflects the general trends in the development of family law, in particular the increasing emphasis upon the parent-child relationship and the diminishing significance of marriage. Therefore substantial changes have been made both to the overall structure and to the content. For example, the chapters on Divorce and Family Protection have been entirely re-written in the light of the Family Law Act 1996.
