Mediation Helps to Resolve Conflicts

Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party assists in developing a resolution to a conflict or dispute. The mediation process is structured and guided by a third party, a mediator, in order for a mutually acceptable settlement to be reached.

Those involved in mediation must voluntarily enter the process.

Mediation is intended to help resolve conflicts and problems in a civil manner to avoid situations escalating into larger problems. The mediation process is designed to allow both sides to express their views and develop an understanding of the needs and opinions of others. Individuals going through mediation will be guided in listening and compromising in order to reach a resolution.

The goal of mediation is to reach an agreement to resolve a problem or conflict and is the main benefit of participating in mediation.
