There are many things in life for which we have become accustomed to paying. Most of us do not fix our own cars, diagnose our health conditions, or cut our own hair.
Yet, despite the fact that those in conflict often benefit from the help of an impartial third party, the concept of seeking this kind of assistance is a relatively new one.
Portland Mediation Clinic (PMC) offers affordable
mediation services for those seeking to resolve their disputes constructively. Using a facilitative mediation style
, PMC helps empower disputing parties by encouraging dialogue, identifying interests, and helping them collaborate on the development of their own best solutions - the most durable kind.
Through the use of dialogue, probing questions, and active listening, family members, housemates, those in interpersonal relationships, neighbors, employees, teams, businesses, and others work to expose the issues underlying their dispute and the obstacles to its resolution.
