Adult Guardianship Mediation: A Judge’s Perspective


This 20-minute video from June 1997 features Washtenaw County, Michigan Probate Judge John Kirkendall, who discusses the value of adult guardianship mediation to courts and judges.  Judge Kirkendall, with The Center for Social Gerontology, implemented the first adult guardianship mediation program in the nation, and, as a result has a "hands-on" feel for how mediation can assist the courts in best meeting the needs of persons who are under consideration for guardianship.  A perfect video for judges, lawyers, mediators, and directors of programs for older persons who are considering developing adult guardianship mediation programs.
