FREE VIRTUAL MEDIATION SESSIONS
Frustrated with your senior parent going to the grocery store against your advice?
Annoyed by your apartment neighbor who plays music as you try to work from home?
Exasperated with your partner who won’t help enough with teaching the kids?
MetroWest Mediation Services, a non-profit organization based in Natick, is pleased to offer free virtual mediation sessions through June 30th.* Tensions can run high as quarantines and social distancing create new challenges for families, neighbors and co-workers. Mediation can restore calm in your life by giving you an opportunity to resolve your conflict in a constructive, efficient manner. Your mediator serves as a neutral who facilitates the conversation, without taking sides, and helps you explore ways to settle the disagreement that meet your needs.
Mediation is confidential and voluntary, so both sides need to agree to participate. You have nothing to lose by trying mediation to see if you can work out an agreement together. If you reach agreement, the mediator will write it up and give copies to both sides. Even if you’ve tried to speak with the person in the past, and “gotten nowhere,” you may find that the conversation is different with a skilled facilitator guiding the process.
Our mediators are community members who have received specific training for their role and have gained extensive experience through mediating disputes in the courts. In the last year, over 96% of people who participated in mediation were satisfied with the process.
