Integrative Mediation is a co-mediation model that provides a holistic approach to conflict resolution so that all aspects of the dispute can be addressed. As the parties are supported in uncovering deeper issues that held the conflict in place, they are able to experience deeper resolution of the conflict.
Both mediators, the lawyer and the mental health professional, are neutral facilitators. Integrative mediation helps people disentangle their emotional and psychological reactions from their legal and financial facts.
Emotions are considered a central part of every dispute and are always addressed with care. This dramatically increases the efficiency of the mediation and the likelihood of reaching a cost-effective resolution.
An integrative mediation model maximizes the odds that the mediation will create a lasting agreement. Parties often report feeling empowered in the process and feeling more positive about the other person.
Integrative mediation can promote forgiveness and closure as well as initiate new levels of respect and love in future interactions.
