About Mediation

Mediators at Erickson Mediation Institute bring parties together who are involved in a conflict or who need to solve a problem in a structured setting and guide them through the process of discussing and coming to agreement about how to solve their problem or resolve their conflict.

Mediators are neutral and do not take sides, they do not provide legal advice, they do not evaluate your decisions, nor do they make any decisions.

Client-Centered Model of MediationErickson Mediation Institute Services

Erickson Mediation Institute follows a client-centered model of mediation, which focuses on the clients’ sense of what is right, what is fair, and what will work for them.  The client-centered mediator creates a structured environment for the parties so that, once they have agreed to the rules of mediation, it is likely they will achieve a resolution.

A core principle of client-centered mediation that one client can only obtain good results for him/herself when he/she also assists the other to reach fair, just results.

me·di·a·tion    n.

1. The act of mediating; intervention.

2. The state of being mediated.

3. An attempt to bring about a peaceful settlement between disputants through the objective intervention of a neutral party.

Mediation is the act of the intervening in conflict for the purpose of bringing about a solution through a series of discussions intended to produce an agreement (or come to a resolution).

A mediator is a professional who intervenes when people are in conflict, and while remaining neutral, guides people in conflict to a settlement that is acceptable to all involved.
