mediation

MediationMediation is a process by which participants, together with the assistance of a neutral third person or persons, systematically isolate disputed issues, in order to develop options, consider alternatives and reach a consensual settlement that will accommodate their needs. Mediation emphasizes the participants' own responsibilities for making decisions that affect their lives. Mediation allows you to be in control of the process and Zanita can help you facilitate a good solution.
