Family mediation is a voluntary process of solving family conflicts as an alternative to legal channels.
The family mediator is an impartial third party without decision-making power. He/she helps and guides the conflicting parties to encourage dialogue and find acceptable solutions based on agreement of all those involved.
For this reason, family mediators must have knowledge of the legal framework, dynamics, conflict situations, communication strategies and conflict resolution, etc. related to family issues.
