What is a Mediation Mediator?
According to Merriam Webster, a mediator is one who mediates between parties in variance. For example if two parties cannot resolve a dispute on their own, a mediation mediator can help them reach an agreement.
Mediation then is intervention between conflicting parties to promote reconciliation, settlement, or compromise.
What types of disputes does a Mediation Mediator Resolve?
Typically a mediation mediator resolves disputes for the following types of situations:
- family resolution – when family members are fighting and can’t reach an agreement
- divorce mediation – when a couple is filing for divorce and wants to reach agreement on the divorce terms
- marriage mediation – when a couple is married and trying unsuccessfully to compromise in a situation
- employment/employer mediation – when there is a work related dispute between a boss or owner and an employee
- tenant landlord mediation – when a renter has a disagree with their landlord
- neighbor and neighborhood mediation – when there is a dispute in a neighborhood that is causing unrest
Choosing a Mediation Mediator
When it’s time to hire a mediator there are several things you’ll want to look for. First, ask for recommendations and/or read reviews from clients. Ask for an initial consultation to make sure you feel comfortable with the personality and communication style of the mediator. You need to feel like you can trust the mediation mediator as you will be sharing intimate personal details and need to be assured of complete confidentiality and privacy. Having someone who can remain neutral and handle your situation with compassion is important. Better yet is a mediation mediator who takes the time to teach effective communication to his clients during the mediation process. Make sure the mediator is a trained professional with a few years of relevant experience under their belt. It’s better to find someone who is a certified mediator, has taken classes in mediation and alternative dispute resolution. Finally, you need someone who can truly remain neutral and doesn’t take sides.
