My adjudication work is done over the phone where we can't see eachother and are not in the same room. Can you give me some tips to verbally recognize trauma and what can be done to be trauma informed in that context?
Janet McKay, Executive Director

You can also raise your hand and we will enable your microphone.

What was the name of that judge? who wrote the article on neutrality?

Things we do in the way we practice: We use private meetings with clients before anything else (in community mediation we call these Case Development) to provide places and times for parties and us to explore the relation between trauma and the DR process we're asking them to engage in. Also, we try to provide mediators (we assign co-mediators from a large roster) whos backgrounds make it more likely they will recognize and understand the parties' realities, including their trauma. We're open to involving other people in mediation who may be needed to support a party or parties for a variety of reasons, including needs stemming from trauma.

Is the Justice Omatsu who wrote about neutrality Maryka Omatsu from here in Ontario? We had the honour to work with her when she sat with the College Park Court in Toronto and helped us to set up criminal diversion to our community mediation service.
