Every person has different life experiences, education, opinions, and perspectives. Therefore, it makes sense that we all see things differently. This naturally creates conflict, which can escalate quickly if not handled appropriately. Often intense conflicts, especially divorce mediation cases, need to be sorted out with the help of a neutral third party.
Our therapists aid conflict resolution by identifying issues, encouraging communication, structuring negotiation, and acknowledging the needs of each party. Mediators have the advantage of objectivity and can help reach a voluntary, mutual settlement to serve the best interests of all involved.
Marty Hanson, LCPC, DBTC provides mediation services at The Antioch Group.
