Barbara is currently still working both in therapy and law in the UK. She also continues to be the supervisor of the Medijacija Projekta of the Centar za mir, which is run by Sonja Stanic and funded through the British Embassy. It is now coming to the end of its first three years of operation and has successfully trained many judges, teachers and others in local communities in mediation theory and skills, setting up mediation services which are provided free of charge to the community. From the end of this year it will now run independently in three areas of Croatia. Mediation in Croatia is now recognised within the judicial process as well as acommunity facility, and Centar za mir has made great achievements in the community- (to see more about the work do take a lookat their great website.. www.centar-za-mir.hr.) Recently Barbara has also been working in Macedonia with UNICEF in providing training and development in child protection.
