Mediation promotes communication and is an effective way of resolving conflicts while working to preserve important relationships, and to save time and money. Mediators help people in conflict clarify issues, identify common interests, and seek their own solutions while creating agreements that satisfy the needs of everyone involved. The mediation process is flexible and promotes creative thinking. Mediation is voluntary, neutral, confidential, self-determined and includes informed consent.
Mediation skills are not only useful for conducting formal mediations, but are applicable in situations and conflicts of all types. Business and workplace conflicts, parent-child and family matters, and conflicts among neighbors are examples of where mediation skills can be invaluable tools in resolving conflicts.
