We are the voice of constructive conflict resolution in Idaho.
Educating, certifying, and supporting cooperative dispute resolution professionals, and promoting community awareness of constructive conflict resolution.
The Idaho Mediation Association (IMA) was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1983 to foster the advancement of mediation through education and professional development. Our mediator members practice in a variety of areas including family, business, environmental, government and workplace. Some of our members have attained Certified Professional Mediator (CPM) status by completing additional training and demonstrating competency in the field of mediation.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a well-established, cost-effective, fair, efficient, and confidential process for resolving disagreements. The Mediator, as an impartial third party, helps people in a dispute find a mutually acceptable resolution. Unlike a court proceeding, in mediation, the decision-making authority rests with the parties themselves.
Who is Qualified to Mediate?
Finding a mediator is not always easy, especially since some individuals who claim to be mediators aren’t really qualified. IMA takes this guesswork out of your search. IMA only lists mediators who have attained the required training and experience to be recognized as a Certified Professional Mediator (CPM). All mediators listed are members in good standing with IMA.
