I am often asked about the difference between mediation and Collaborative Practice. Whilst I am a mediator by training my great passion is Collaborative practice. I attach an article by Robert Benjamin which provides a simple definition of mediation. 'The simplest definition of mediation is a negotiation process between three (or more) parties: the two disputants and a third party mediator. The mediator has only the authority the parties allow him or her. The mediator effectively negotiates his or her authority with each of the parties and in turns helps them negotiate between themselves.'
I endorse the article and hope it helps readers understand a little more about mediation.
