Mediation Perspective: Mediation is a facilitated discussion on the important issues so people can resolve problems voluntarily. By sharing facts and the dilemmas each face, it results in informed decisions and a better relationship. I show opportunities to improve the communication and support a range of choices to meet everyone's needs. In addition to written agreements, people often say they feel more confident and clear and have a better understanding of another's perspective.
