Over the coming weeks we will be posting daily information on mediation, the MII and the benefits of using an MII accredited mediator on our Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn pages. Please feel free to like, share and comment on our posts.
"I have never worked with a process as flexible as Mediation. Disputes involve an unquantifiable number of different situations, different people with varying concerns and pressures. Being able to assess all those differences, all those variations before determining the structure of the process sets up the participants to succeed in a way that no other dispute resolution technique can deliver. Being able to deliver that felxibility, inspiration and imagination to the difficult process of finding solutions to the key areas in any dispute is the most important factor in making Mediation so successful in resolving disputes."https://bit.ly/2LAlvbL
"Confidentiality is a really important feature of Mediation. Participants find the privacy of the process highly attractive - it certainly plays a big part in the 'nothing to lose' approach that many people have to Mediation. If it works confidentiality protects the outcome to make it effective. If it doesn't work no-one will even know it happened. Confidentiality is the driving force behind a lot of Mediation's successes." https://bit.ly/2Vfma1S
" Disputes often involve fractured relationships. Sometimes quite inconsequential differences can become much greater because of the breakdown in communication and respect between the parties. As a lawyer I've seen the adversarial system turn disputes into conflicts and ruin the relationships of those involved permanently. Mediation does exactly the opposite by de-escalating the dispute into a negotiation rather than escalating it into a war. As a process Mediation encourages mutual respect and provides a basis for people to interact in the future in a useful, civilised way". http://www.themii.ie/about-mediation/benefits-of-mediation
""When it comes to finite resources such as time and money there's simply no contest; Mediation costs less and happens more quickly - it really is as simple as that. Then on top of that there are the less tangible but important benefits of being a less stressful, more positive process which produces outcomes which are much more likely to succeed over time. From any objective standpoint Mediation ticks all the boxes." http://www.themii.ie/about-mediation/benefits-of-mediation

" There are many different areas of dispute in which mediation is effective, and MII accredited mediators work in diverse areas including: Agriculture Mediation, Commercial Mediation, Community Mediation, Elder Mediation, Family Mediation,Restorative Practice Mediation, Workplace Mediation, etc See individual sectors under About Mediation on www.themii.ie
"Family farm disputes that need to be resolved have traditionally gone to Court. The legal route to dispute resolution is costly and the issue may be heard in public. Furthermore, this process invariably leads to fractured personal relationships or loss of business relationships.
"Relationship breakdown can be very emotional and stressful – making it particularly difficult to agree decisions in relation to living arrangements, finances and childcare. Mediation can help by offering a framework for separating couples to make informed decisions with the help of a trained professional" https://bit.ly/30JpgPQ
The MII accredits mediation training courses which meet set training standards.
The purpose of CPD is to ensure that Mediators keep their knowledge and skills up to date for the benefit of users of their service and for their own personal and professional development.
