I hope…that mankind will at length, as they call themselves reasonable creatures, have reason and sense enough to settle their differences without cutting throats; for in my opinion there never was a good war or a bad peace.

What is Mediation?
Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) process that can be used to resolve problems between individuals or groups. In this process, an impartial person referred to as a mediator helps facilitate communication between people. During the session, the mediator helps those involved discuss the problem, identify the real issues, and explore options to create a voluntary, mutually acceptable solution.
