Mediation is a private, informal process in which parties to a conflict voluntarily participate in a joint effort to reach a settlement.

A neutral third party, the mediator, facilitates discussion amongst the parties, assists in defining the issues, addresses the barriers to resolution and facilitates a mutually acceptable settlement.

Mediation is a confidential, lower cost, process that promotes respectful and constructive communication to manage conflict between two or more parties.
