What is Mediation?
Mediation is a process of facilitated conversation in which an impartial third party (the mediator) helps people in a dispute talk over their concerns or needs, brainstorm for solutions, and work towards a resolution that will work best for everyone concerned.
Who can be a mediator?
Mediators come from all backgrounds. Profession and education don’t determine effectiveness as a skilled mediator…solid training, the right attitude, experience, and practice do! CMS’ Mediation Training provides the foundation you’ll need to become an effective and successful mediator.
You can be a mediator!
