Abstract

In this article, Ebner and Johnsen discuss mismatches between how mediation is taught, and how it is practiced. For example, many mediation teachers teach a facilitative model, whereas much of mediation practice is evaluative. Some of these mismatches hint at a disconnect between academia and practice; others, however, are intentional and values-based.
