Program Mentors

The Mentored Mediation Setting

Skilled and experienced Child Protection mediators are contracted by the CPP to act as mentors for practicum participants. Mentors supervise and co-mediate, working closely with Practicum mediators to prepare for and conduct mediations and providing constructive feedback on mediator progress and skill development. Practicum mediators are matched with a variety of mentors throughout the practicum to ensure a diverse learning experience. (For a list of CPP Mentors, please see below.)

CPP Mentors are professional mediators with substantial experience mediating in the Child Protection context. They are members in good standing on the Mediate BC Society’s Child Protection Roster.
