Negotiation and Mediation in Transdisciplinary Decision-Making.
Baine, David
This presentation introduces the methods of negotiation and mediation in transdisciplinary decision-making, and applies the methods specifically to the educational needs and placements of students with disabilities. Four stages of mediation are described: problem identification, generation of problem-solving options, evaluation of options, and agreeing to solutions. Common problems arising at each stage are discussed, such as taking an inflexible stand on an issue, emotional outbursts, prolonged repetition of the same points, personal attacks, premature acceptance of a "solution" without considering all of the relevant variables, and resisting agreement. Mediator's responses to each type of problem are also presented, along with the rationale for each mediator response. (Author/JDD)
