    The mediation process is voluntary, parties keep control, trained mediator facilitates process, resolution is flexible, and care is taken to preserve family relationship, win-win approach.

    Almost any situation short of violence benefits from mediation. At the very least, the parties with the help of a trained mediator will have their story and concerns fully heard by all involved; and potential resolution options will be aired and discussed. At best the matter will be resolved in a long lasting and acceptable way.

    A good mediator is respectful, open, neutral, patient, calm, and skilled in active listening and option generating techniques, has knowledge of or is able to understand and incorporate knowledge of the underlying problem.
