​Conflict Mediation

  The Mediation Process

  1. ​​Referral- You contact us about a situation that needs mediating
  2. Intake- We contact you to arrange a time and place for mediation, and to gather necessary information
  3. Mediation- Mediators meet with you in a neutral and safe location to engage in careful and respectful conversation, with the aim of resolving conflict
  4. Agreement- If the mediation goes well, an agreement will be established that is agreeable to all parties
  5. ​Confidentiality- To ensure your freedom to say everything that needs to be said during a mediation, all parties agree to maintain strict confidentiality 
  6. Follow up- We will contact you two weeks after an agreement is reached, to make sure all parties are following the agreement, or if perhaps an additional mediation may be helpful ​
