How is Mediation Conducted
There are three methods of mediation.
What Happens in a Mediation?
There are three methods of mediation:
Telephone Conciliation: You do not meet face-to-face with the other person. The mediator talks to each of you separately by telephone to solve the dispute.
Face-to-Face Mediation: All parties meet in person with the mediator. We schedule the mediation at a time and location convenient for you.
Telephone Caucus: All parties are available via phone at the same time and the mediator talks to each party individually.
In all sessions, the mediator does the following:
- Helps each of you understand the other person’s point-of-view.
- Helps you focus on the problem.
- Assists you in reaching a solution you are both comfortable with.
