Evanston Mediation Center creates an environment where clients can confidentially communicate about their dispute. The mediator will work to help each participant improve communications by encouraging active listening, healthy dialogue and a better understanding of the other party. Finally, the mediator will facilitate the parties’ creation of comprehensive and mutually acceptable resolutions. Throughout the process, Evanston Mediation Center works to focus the participants on their individual and joint interests or needs in an effort to reach mutually acceptable agreements.
Mediation is a voluntary process in which two or more parties involved in a dispute work with an impartial party, the mediator, to settle their conflict.
For your convenience Evanston Mediation Center provides the option of conducting mediation through video conferencing.
