What are marriage mediations? If your marriage is breaking and you want solutions to solve your problems fast, marriage mediations can help. Marriage mediation services are a process by which married couples can quickly identify problems they are experiencing, brainstorm ideas to solve those challenges, and create solutions to solve those issues.
How marriage mediations differ from marriage counseling
In marriage counseling, a therapist works with a couple to understand the conflict and the underlying dynamics at play. A lot of focus is placed on discovering the issues, why they have occurred, exploring feelings, understanding each other, and learning more effective communication. Much of the emphasis of marriage counseling is focused on understanding the problem.
In marriage mediations, rather then deep exploration of the problem, couples are put on the fast track to solving the issues. With the help of a neutral third party facilitator, couples are led through negotiations designed to create win/win solutions. The result is compromises that make both parties happy.
Benefits of marriage mediations
Marriage mediations can save a broken relationship. The marriage mediations process can create solutions to recurring issues. It helps couples to stop fighting, and repair their problems. It can create results fast, often in just a few short sessions. By contrast marriage counseling can take weeks or months. When parents fight, it hurts the children too. By healing a wounded marriage, it heals the hearts of the children affected as well. Finally, marriage mediations teach couples how to communicate more effectively. By learning how to listen, share feelings, and understand one another it makes it easier to deal with conflict.
