Why Use a Mediator?
“Dispute poison” occurs when opponents battle it out, for revenge, retaliation, and financial compensation for emotional loss, and so on, thinking that this will ease the pain of loss or still the anger they feel towards the other.
Too often, after the breakdown of a relationship, or in conflict situations, people seek legal intervention which fosters acrimony, hostility, anger, bitterness, incapacitating emotional stress and recurrent wounding. Our intervention seeks to prevent this by facilitating the process of returning people to their honor and integrity, by creating an agreement of terms that is emotionally intelligent, and by fostering constructive ways to resolve issues.
