Why Mediation Works

Conflict happens. When individuals cannot agree, relationships suffer. When co-workers won’t cooperate, productivity plummets. When strife occurs in the community, progress stalls. Mediation enables parties to enter a dialogue that is focused and productive. Mediation provides a process for positive change by diffusing emotions and exploring options in order to resolve conflict.

Uses of Mediation

Mediation works to ease decision-making, planning, and/or conflict resolutions in many different types of organizations from the family to the community group to the workplace.

Types of discussions that lend themselves to mediation include:

Strategic Planning

Facilitated decision making or mediation helps families, organizations and businesses in strategic planning.   Stakeholders come together to share information and brainstorm not only the direction for the future, but what information will be necessary to help chart the course.  In facilitation, parties may discuss:

    Safety and well-being of children
    Family members’ disagreements or concerns about custody and visitation
    Eldercare and estates
    Adolescent transitions
    Special Education students in meetings between parents and teachers
    Educational matters such as truancy or attendance
    Community matters
