The Centre for Mediation and Dispute Resolution Director, Lynne Halem Looks Back at 2015

Mediation offers couples, families, and businesses a confidential forum for confronting their differences, a forum in which constructive and collaborative problem solving is the key to reaching agreements acceptable to all participants.

Changing trends in our mediation clients indicate an increased awareness of mediation as an alternative not only to litigation, but also to the resolution of issues that separate, divide, and injure families and businesses. As a problem-solving process, mediation is being recognized and touted as a way to confront differences without destroying relationships.

Even in divorce, where separation is the end product, relationships may be maintained, even strengthened, as parents continue to collaborate in the raising of their children and former spouses can communicate as individuals with a history to be preserved.

In looking back at our mediation clients' situations, some trends emerge that couples and individuals, business colleagues, and/or families considering mediation may find helpful.
