Establishing the Mediation Environment So the Participants Feel Safe and Supported.


As a mediator, a critical part of my job is to establish the framework and ground rules so that the necessary conversations can take place and move along, ultimately to resolution.

In this blog posting, Susan Ingram writes about establishing the essential foundation for a successful mediation.

  • Facilitating conversation

  • Problem-solving

  • Protecting against power imbalances

  • Setting the pace

  • Safekeeping the space

If I have done my job well, the couple doesn’t necessarily realize all of the behind-the-scenes effort put into ensuring that the process runs smoothly.
