It is an exciting time in the mediation world! More and more people are seeking mediation to help them through challenging life-transitions and more professionals are seeking specialized training to enhance their conflict-resolution skills. As exciting is the growing recognition that facilitations and meditations can help families-in-transition plan and prepare for the future so that potential conflict can be avoided.
