Mediation Position Statement

Mediation is a voluntary confidential process that allows two or more disputing parties resolve their conflict in a mutually agreeable way with the help of a neutral third party, a mediator.

Mediation focuses on the interests or needs of the parties and on solutions, not on determining or assigning blame. The mediator does not impose a solution but rather works with all parties to create their own solution. All parties should participate in the mediation in the spirit of compromise with the goal and intention of achieving a settlement of the case.
