Mediation is a self-empowering process that encourages parties to make decisions and work out their own solutions. Both parties must agree on solutions.
Clarifies Areas of Conflict:
The mediator listens to both sides equally and helps to limit the conflict and discuss things productively. Mediation promotes recognition of the other party's point of view as well as clarifying one's own thoughts and feelings.
Future Relationship Between the Parties:
Mediation provides long lasting, durable agreements and the best results for relationships that need to continue into the future.
In most cases, mediation is less expensive than other professional services.
