Mediation helps parties resolve conflict using a variety of styles and approaches to do this. Much like doctors and counselors will use different strategies to achieve desired results, so too do mediators use different techniques. The three main styles of mediation are evaluative, facilitative, and transformative. I believe in using all three styles as more of an eclectic approach that evaluates, validates and creates a space for healing.
