Perspective on the Mediation Process: Mediation is a voluntary process where people can resolve their important issues. It is a facilitated discussion where you share facts, acknowledge emotions, and work through problems, resulting in better decisions and a better relationship. I show opportunities to improve the communication and support a range of choices that meets the needs of all who participate. In addition to written agreements, people have expressed that they feel more confidence, have a better understanding of each other’s perspectives, and are comfortable with their decisions.
