The Principle


The stress of prolonged disputes is manifested not only in wasted time and money, but in strain and dysfunction. Academic, government, and legal officials recognize that Alternative Dispute Resolution, especially mediation, can hasten the resolution of disputes and contribute to the best management of conflict.

During mediation,
each party provides real input. Thus a mediated solution is easier for most people to live with over time.

In short, mediation outcomes last longer because the parties perceive that their needs have been addressed, and that they have obtained personal empowerment throughout the process. This often results in better ongoing and future relationship between all parties involved.
