Abstract:     
This article addresses missed opportunities in court-oriented mediation that may result from the habitual narrow focus of repeat players in the process. Welsh and Riskin propose four mechanisms to allow mediation participants - particularly one-shot players - to explore problems more broadly and to engage in the process of choosing the most appropriate problem-definition for the mediation of their case.

Keywords: mediation, dispute resolution, ADR
