What is Mediation and Conflict Resolution?
Mediation and conflict resolution are highly structured and focussed processes to help resolve specific disagreements and disputes. These disagreements can be related to family matters, separation and divorce issues or within a workplace.
When you feel very strongly about something and others do not agree with you or do not understand why it matters so much to you, it is very hard not to get into a conflict. And once you are in conflict, it is almost always impossible to reach an agreement or a compromise willingly. It is impossible to think rationally, to listen to or be heard by others.
At times like this there can also be a danger of using or succumbing to coercive control. Conflict is very psychologically damaging for vulnerable persons such as children, to witness or be a part of. When you seek out Mediation you are no-longer alone in trying to sort out your conflicting issues.
