Mediation is a process which solves conflicts with a structured but open dialogue.
When in conflict, parties tend not to communicate effectively. Poor communication can cause conflict to escalate. Part of the mediation process is to re-open a dialogue through which positive ideas can flow.
All parties are encouraged to express themselves in a carefully monitored environment. When all needs and interests have been made clear and understood, constructive and controlled collaboration can begin. The result is an agreement which best serves all interests.
A mediator is an impartial third party who helps and supports the other parties in this process.
Mediation can be used in numerous situations where disagreement has escalated into conflict.
