Hi! Mediation Source was initiated and developed by me, Laura May Skillen. I was previously a negotiation and mediation lecturer, as well as Executive Director of the International Mediation Institute. When teaching, it proved tricky to find simple but quality exercises for practising mediation skills, and my students lacked resources for practising on their own time. For that reason, I set up this site as a source for mediation practice materials of all kinds.

I’d love to hear what you think of the roleplays and other materials. Which are your favourite? Your least favourite? What did you like, and what do you want to see more of?
