What is Mediation?
Mediation is an interactive, structured process in which an impartial third party helps disputing parties to resolve conflict through negotiation and communication through the utilization of specialized negotiation and communication techniques. All parties involved in mediation are required to actively participate in the mediation process. The mediator must be both knowledgeable in the underlying subject matter and skilled in communication to facilitate productive discussions among all parties.
