Mediation in the Court of Protection - An Introduction for Private Client Professionals
Mediations with vulnerable adults or with someone who lacks capacity are mostly about protecting a vulnerable adult’s interests.
It is also ensuring decision making is taken by an authorised person in the Donor/P's best interests. Where someone lacks capacity there is the necessity to closely follow the Mental Capacity Act and ensure their involvement in the mediation process.
This live broadcast session is aimed at practitioners who are not themselves mediators, but practise in areas involving elderly clients and individuals lacking mental capacity.
The session aims to help you decide when a vulnerable adult mediation may be suitable and will explain what happens at a vulnerable adult mediation, together with your involvement in the process.
