What is Mediation?
Mediation is a well-established, cost-effective, fair, efficient, and confidential process for resolving disagreements. The Mediator, as an impartial third party, helps people in a dispute find a mutually acceptable resolution. Unlike a court proceeding, in mediation, the decision-making authority rests with the parties themselves.
There are no fixed rules governing the process of mediation, but there are some common elements.
Finding a mediator is not always easy, especially since some anyone can hold themself out as a mediator. IMA takes the guesswork out of your search. IMA only lists mediators who have attained the required training and experience to be recognized as a Certified Professional Mediator (CPM) and are members of IMA.
