Interpersonal mediation is a way to resolve conflict between individuals with the help of ECR mediators who are trained in the process of dispute resolution. The mediator does not take sides, and makes sure the process is fair for everyone. As an initial step, each person is given the opportunity to explain, uninterrupted, his or her view of the situation. Mediators help the people in conflict work out an acceptable settlement of their differences.
