The parties attempt to reach a resolution of their dispute with the
assistance of a skilled mediator. The mediator is entirely independent and
impartial and all information given to him by the parties remains fully
confidential. The mediator will promote as far as
possible common ground and a realistic settlement of a dispute between
parties who may be a long way apart at first. The procedure is entirely
voluntary and neither party is compelled to reach agreement. However
mediation does have a good success rate.

numerous professional negligence and personal injury claims, commercial
disputes, employment (including cases for the DTI), property and boundary
disputes, and family financial conflicts.
Mediation: A Psychological
Insight into Conflict Resolution
This book is about conflict resolution through mediation, from a
psychological perspective. Although partly written from a litigation viewpoint,
it demonstrates how an appreciation of the psychological aspects of conflict and
of the emotional strategies people adopt in dispute situations can assist both
lawyers and non-lawyers in resolving conflicts.
