Mediation – Conflict Resolution

Whether a dispute involves two individuals or a larger group, ACHIEVE’s mediators will work with disputing parties to identify interests, clarify issues, and work towards options for resolving the conflict.

Mediation – Conflict Resolution

Sometimes stress, personality differences, or other precipitating factors can lead to conflict among individuals or within an entire group. Dealing with conflict can be both frustrating, time consuming, and can limit the effectiveness of everyone involved. Whether a dispute involves two individuals or a larger group, a mediated process can resolve disputes that otherwise continue to be a burden. The time required for mediation is different in each situation and will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

Successful mediation requires:
– The desire to resolve the conflict from both parties
– Both parties to agree to the mediation process
– The mediator to be viewed as unbiased

While there are some circumstances (violence, harassment, etc.) where the use of mediation may not be suitable, in most cases, when all of the proceeding points for successful mediation are met, mediation has a high success rate. If the focus of mediation is for a larger group or community, it can be beneficial for participants to take our training in Conflict Resolution Skills before beginning the mediation process.
