All professions are governed by an objective set of ethical standards and the mediation profession is no exception. Ethics and practice standards provide integrity to the mediation process by informing consumers of what they can expect from their mediator and by ensuring that participants are provided with a safe, effective process.
As the current co-chairman of the Association of Conflict Resolution (ACR) Ethics Committee and as co-author of the ACR Ethical Principles, I would like to make available to the public a complimentary copy of the ACR Ethical Principles as well as a copy of the Model Standards of Conduct By Mediators which has been adopted by American Arbitration Association and the Association for Conflict Resolution, and which was approved by the American Bar Association. I proudly abide by these Principles and Standards in conducting my practice.
