MEDIATION

Nancy is a member of Family Mediation Canada​ https://www.fmc.ca/ .

Mediation is practiced as a solution-focused means of dispute resolution. It is facilitated by a mediator acting as a neutral third party that has no decision-making power.

The aim of mediation is to focus on the interests of the parties and to identify common ground. Interests can be substantive, procedural and or psychological:

Substantive:  needs such as money, control or resources​

Procedural:  needs relating to the process or the way in which a dispute is resolved

Psychological:  needs relating to feelings or emotions about the issue

Interests are the driving force behind every dispute.  By identifying these underlying interests, parties can open up positions and create new options for resolution.
