FAQ's - Domestic Violence
Do you mediate when there has been domestic violence?Laura L. Noah has completed the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women’s Network 40-hour domestic violence training. She is well-trained in screening for domestic violence and in making decisions about the appropriateness of mediation and in keeping the mediation process safe for everyone. In some instances, shuttle mediation (where the mediator meets with each person privately, “shuttling” the information between them) may be appropriate and may be a better alternative than the courts. Under other circumstances, mediation may not be appropriate.
Laura L. Noah has also presented on mediation to domestic violence survivors and advocates. Her most recent presentation was through the Chicago Metropolitan Battered Women's Network Training Institute.
