Abstrakt: In this article, I discuss the process and outcomes of a successful developmental project on family mediation in Finland. Family mediation is a municipal service available for divorcing parents who cannot agree on child custody matters. In the Marriage Act of 1987, prerequisites were made for family mediation as an early intervention to help families in conflict. In practice, only few parents used the service. Moreover, the concept of mediation was fluid and diffuse and practitioners working with divorce families understood and applied mediation in different ways. Moreover, often family mediation was not undertaken as a distinct process. In the article, I describe the developmental work done in a project called "Fasper" whose aim was to change the present situation by exploring the concept of family mediation and producing new mediation models, practices and tools for family mediators. Following the methodological starting points of Developmental Work Research, the project did not offer a ready-made, top-down model for family mediation. Instead, practitioners studied divorce services and developed, tested and implemented new models and practices for family mediation. It is important to continue this work and bring it to the national level in order promote major changes in the system. © The Author(s) 2018.
