MEDIATION PROGRAM

go back


Mediation programs provide an alternative method of resolving complaints or disputes without having to go to court. Through the mediation process, the individuals involved in a dispute work out their own solutions with the help of a mediator. The mediator does not force a decision on the individuals but helps guide them in reaching a solution. Since the individuals involved in the dispute play active roles in resolving the problem, they are usually comfortable and supportive of the solution.


Successful mediations often result in written agreements that are signed by both individuals in a dispute. If the parties do not reach a mutually acceptable solution, either or both of the parties may still file a court action.


Mediation procedures are voluntary and ordinarily take place in one or more sessions. Mediators are either trained, volunteer non-lawyers who reside in the community, or are paid individuals with backgrounds in law, psychology, or counseling.


The mediator's role is to work with both parties in a dispute to identify the issues, reduce misunderstandings, clarify priorities, vent emotions, find points of agreement, explore new areas of compromise, and negotiate an agreement.
