Nobody likes conflict. Especially when it involves family. Unfortunately, conflict is part of life, and even with therapeutic support, many families come to a point when conflict resolution doesn’t feel possible without third party intervention.
Seeking conflict resolution through long litigation processes generates even more stress and often holds your back in a difficult situation that causes even more pain, hurting and even trauma. That is why mediation services are explored as a friendlier alternative for conflict resolution.
If you and your partner are going through a separation, mediation can reduce the cost of litigation and increase the level of understanding, compassion and guidance. In addition, working with a mediator who is also a mental health professional can decrease the emotional upset caused by the separation.
