Paul BrownFamily Professional
Member: Paul Brown
Paul has worked in the Social Work field for approximately 15 years. He is a former Child Protection Worker, and has been a private practice mediator since 2009. Paul went into the field of Dispute Resolution with a vision of helping people through challenging times and difficult transitions in their lives.
Paul is considered an industry leader in Child Protection Mediation, and has presented on this topic at multiple conferences, as well as written books on the topic that have been cited internationally. Recently, he was interviewed as part of a PhD research project in hopes of implementing Child Protection Mediation strategies in Ireland.
Paul has extensive experience working with families engaged in high conflict, and uses creative strategies to keep parents focussed on the needs to children in any Dispute Resolution process. He believes in a collaborative process, as it reinforces the model that everyone involved is part of a team striving for the best overall outcome; especially for children.
Paul is a retired (volunteer) on-call firefighter, and a current member of After The Call, a critical incident stress management team for First Responders. All of these experiences combined have served him well in his dispute resolution career, as he is able to stay calm while dealing with crisis situations.
