What is Mediation?
Mediation is a confidential process used to resolve conflicts in an amicable manner. An impartial
mediator directs the process and facilitates the communication between the parties, in an effort
to explore solutions and obtain a mutually satisfactory agreement. In mediation, whether private or public, decision-making authority rests with the parties. The role of the mediator includes reducing the obstacles to communication, maximizing the exploration of alternatives, and addressing the needs of those it is agreed are involved or affected.

Mediation is based on principles of problem solving that focus on the needs and interests of the participants; fairness; privacy; self-determination; and the best interests of all parties.

What Happens in Mediation?
The mediator welcomes the participants; explains the mediation process, the mediator’s role in
the process, and the rules of mediation. The participants present the issues they want to
resolve; explore their interests and options; and look for a mutual resolution. If the parties reach
an agreement and sign it, this agreement may have the validity of a contract.
