Mediation Processes

Mediation processes are primarily facilitative processes. The mediator provides assistance in managing a process which supports the participants to make decisions about future actions and outcomes. Some mediators may also use a ‘blended process’ that involves mediation and incorporates an advisory component or a process that involves the provision of expert information and advice. These processes are sometimes referred to as “evaluative mediation” or “conciliation”. Such processes may involve the provision of expert information and advice, provided it is given in a manner that enhances the principle of self-determination and provided that the participants request that such advice be given.
