Why Mediators should not give advice!!

This is a great article on why mediators should not give parties advice.  I agree fully with this article and all of the reasons.  Mediation is not a place for people to be told what someone else thinks they should do, it is a place they should be supported to figure out for themselves what they should do.  If they need someone to tell them what to do, the Court is ready to assist!

    Thanks for the post. These are good reminders why mediators don’t give advice, something central to the practice of mediation.
