WHAT MEDIATION IS
Common Ground Mediation has been helping citizens of Coos and Douglas Counties have difficult conversations for 20 years by providing mediation services in many settings and situations.
Mediation is a method of settling disputes confidentially with the assistance of a neutral third party. The mediator helps the two sides talk about the problem in a mutually respectful manner. The parties work together to reach a creative solution acceptable to both parties.
Mediation is not a court hearing; witnesses are not needed. It is not a process to determine who is guilty or innocent. It is an opportunity to talk about the problems in a safe and supportive environment.
