Mediation is basically a structured, interactive, and structured process where an independent third party helps disputing parties resolve conflict by using specialized communication and negotiation methods. Each participant in mediation is encouraged to actively engage in the process.
In most cases mediation is used as an alternative to a trial.
However, it can also be used to resolve disputes that cannot be resolved through the judicial system, such as divorce, spousal abuse, child custody, and harassment. Both parties must agree to work together in a collaborative manner, otherwise it will not be considered a mediation.
Mediation involves a meeting between two or more people who have conflicting views on a matter. This may occur between family members or friends, business associates, or other members of the community.
