The mediator demonstrates skilled interventions designed to diffuse conflict, restore relationships, break impasse, and reach resolution. The mediator and the parties also reflect on the process in pre- and post-mediation interviews.

The dispute is realistically portrayed, though parties and dispute are fictional. The Teacher’s Manual includes class exercises and elaborates on many topics, such as how this style of mediation is relevant to shuttle negotiation. The 92-min. DVD can be shown in one sitting or its chapters assigned individually as students study each stage of the process.  Mediation Sunshine Coast

What is a Mediator ? A Mediator is a 3rd Party Neutral, a Peacemaker, who keeps your information strictly confidential, is fair and balanced and works with you to come to a Mutually Acceptable Agreement. The mediator does NOT make legal decisions for you or for the court, but works with you and your partner, to come to a reasonable and peaceful decision about your marriage divorce settlement. Florida Divorce Mediation offers multiple and flexible possibilities for resolving divorce conflict. In divorce court cases, judgment is thrust upon the parties by judge and lawyers. In Florida Divorce Mediation, parties have voluntary control over the divorce settlement, and the resolution does not have to conform to standard law or prior divorce cases. If parties change their mind after the mediation proceedings have begun, and decide not to continue, they are free to cease the process without coming to resolution. Often, mediation settlements developed by parties are solutions that judge or lawyers do not divorcing provide. Florida Divorce Mediation is more likely to produce a mutually agreeable win/win for the parties. And, because divorce settlement is attained by both parties working together, compliance with the mediated agreement is usually high. This results in less costs, because parties do not have to retain lawyers to force compliance with the divorce settlement agreement. The mediated agreement is fully enforceable in Florida Court of law just like any other law court settlement.
Fourth, Florida Divorce Mediation process consists of a mutual endeavor. Unlike law court negotiations where parties are often entrenched in their positions, parties in mediation usually seek out solutions. They are more willing to discuss resolving conflict than working against one another. The mediation parties are amenable to understanding the other party’s side and work on underlying conflict issues. The added benefit is preserving the relationship the parties had before the divorcing conflict occurred.
This is especially important where children are concerned.

http://www.nolodivorce.com Ed Sherman of NoloDivorce discusses Mediation in Divorce. Divorce Mediation can allow you and your spouse to come to a mutual agreement.

As you can see in this illustration, when a divorce is uncontested, that is, when there is no legal opposition in court, so no contest, all you need to get your judgment is some paperwork and red tape. This doesn’t have to take long or cost much. This is the easiest and least-expensive way to get a divorce.
If your Ex is on the scene and cares about the terms of your divorce, your case will become uncontested only if you two can work out a written agreement on all legal issues—that is, money, property and children. Notice, too, that even if you are in a legal battle, you can get out of the legal grinder at any time by working out a written agreement.
Why do couples find it so difficult to work out an agreement?
It is very rare to find a case where the reason for disagreement is legal. The reason for disagreement is almost always personal — a matter of high emotions, poor communications, painful history, and so on, Now, the law has no solutions that will help solve personal disagreements, so you won’t get much help in court. In fact, trying to solve divorce problems in court is a sure way to greatly increase the conflict in your life and the emotional pain, and the cost will be huge. It is very important to solve your problems out of court, which means negotiation or mediation that lead to a written settlement agreement.
So, if you have trouble agreeing on the terms of your divorce, you don’t want a lawyer, you want a mediator.
Mediation is where you and your Ex sit down together with a professional who is trained to help you speak reasonably to each other, help you explore various options, balance the negotiating power in the room, and arrive at a fair agreement, When divorcing couples work out an agreement that they both sign on to, there is a much higher rate of compliance with the terms of the divorce than where the same terms are imposed by a judge, you get much better post-divorce cooperation, especially with the parenting of children, and emotional recovery is much faster.
If your disagreements involves significant assets like real estate or retirement funds, might be better off with a mediator who is a family law attorney that does mostly mediation and very little court work. If your disagreement is primarily about children—custody and visitation—you can consider using a therapist or family counselor who does a lot of divorce mediation.
My book, Make Any Divorce Better, shows you how to talk to each other in a way that will reduce conflict, solve problems, and lay the groundwork for a successful negotiation or mediation. And it tells you how to find and use a good mediator.
