[20] Thomas Kuhn coined the term “paradigm shift” in his 1962 book, The Structure of Scientific Revolutions. The term refers to a significant change in assumptions and patterns of thought which radically transforms the former way of thinking. He originally applied the term to the natural sciences and it was later applied by others to the social sciences.

[30] Mediation/Arbitration is a bit of an exception.

[31] World-renowned mediator and negotiator, William Ury, has several informative videos on this website: http://www.williamury.com/videos/. “The Power of Listening”, “Going to the Balcony”, “Rotman School: Getting to Yes with Yourself”, and “How to Effectively Persuade” may be particularly helpful.

[33] See Lisa Nelson’s video “What is Divorce Mediation?”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=opRvQiNL2H0

[34] The arbitrator is bound by the rules of natural justice which means that the process must be fair, transparent, and all parties must have an opportunity to be heard.

[35] See LegalYou’s video “Mediation and Arbitration: What You Need to Know” which describes the differences between mediation and arbitration, although it doesn’t describe the hybrid process:

[37] Elisabeth Kübler-Ross originally identified the 5 phases of grieving: 1) Denial and isolation. 2) Anger. 3) Bargaining. 4) Depression. 5) Acceptance. The phases are not linear. People can move back and forth between different phases before finally reaching acceptance. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, On Death and Dying, Routledge, 1969.
