Why it Works


Mediation works because each party involved is fully heard.  The parties' concerns and needs are addressed and met through the settlement agreement they reach. It is their own agreement, not one created or imposed on them by others. Therefore, it is much more likely to be a lasting settlement than if imposed by a court, hearing officer or arbitrator.  We like to think of this as developing a do-able and durable agreement.

What We Offer


Mediation

Mediation is a peaceful alternate means of conflict resolution, where disputes can be settled satisfactorily without going to court.

Conciliation

Conciliator acts as an impartial go-between and facilitator. The conciliator usually speaks with each person separately by phone.

Facilitation

Facilitators work with group leaders in advance of the facilitation to develop an appropriate plan, then guides the meetings; helping to generate the most workable solutions.

Training

Our trainings offer participants opportunities to develop conflict resolution and/or mediation skills.
