who is this guy?
So this site’s built by Scott Docherty, and thanks so much for spending some time on it. His other site’s at theCALMmediator.com.
Scott is a mediator and Partner in the Dumbarton office of McArthur Stanton. He’s accredited by the Law Society of Scotland in family mediation, is a convener of CALM Scotland, a member of the Family Law Association, a trustee of the Scottish Mediation Network (and Chair of its Peer Mediation Working Group), and was the first lawyer mediator in Scotland to be trained in direct consultation with children in family mediation (“child inclusive mediation”). He is also a member of the Family Mediation Accreditation Panel of the Law Society of Scotland.
For CALM Scotland, Scott created and manage its website, operates all social media accounts, records the #videoCALM & #audioCALM interviews you can access on the site, YouTube and iTunes, and can also design for you a quality mediation website & social media presence – click here for more. He is also advancing training and the use of online mediation for mediators, and child-inclusive mediation where that would be appropriate.
Scott’s the author of How To Talk To Your Kids About Separation, and is in the process of writing a follow up book on resolving issues with your ex after the separation, as well as another on his journey in mediation. At the moment he’s working in collaboration with state bodies and other like-minded organisations on developing a unified and more powerful voice for mediation in Scotland. The aim is to make more universal awareness and ease of access for mediation, to spread the word about just how life-changing it can be for those who take part. He has every faith that in the coming years our community will feel the benefit of this continued revolution in conflict resolution.
