Mediation helps to slice up the problems. What is a mediator? A mediator is an unbiased individual that helps two or more parties come together into an agreement and work to resolve and give peaceable resolutions to problems without having to go to court.
What do mediators do? Mediators help negotiate contracts, disputes between neighbors, couples, advocate for children, help to solve relationship, family disputes and more. Like counselors, mediators work with people to help improve relations, but focus on problem solving and getting results.
How does conflict bring about peace? Sometimes difficult conversations need to occur in order for parties to best understand each other, often creating conflict, when varied interests arise. This is when negotiation and actual peace can begin to occur.
While this is uncomfortable for some, ignoring the problem will not make it go away. A wound ignored does not go away. This is where mediation comes into play to bring about peace.
