Family Mediation
yellow
Family mediation is a facilitated problem solving strategy for families in conflict with children age 10-18. With the help of trained volunteer mediators, who have no stake in the outcome, members of families are assisted in seeing each others’ points of view.

In mediation, each family member has the chance to share their perspective. The mediator’s job is to provide structure for the decision making. They then work together toward an agreement to solve the problem. Through this approach, families move into a better place - communicating and functioning together.

The greatest benefit of mediation is that members of the family make the decision. This way they are not left with a decision imposed upon them. The mediator is there to guide the parties in reaching their decision by encouraging good communication, defining issues, and guiding the possible solutions.
