your relationship WITH CONFLICT
IMA is an association of mediators that educates, certifies, and supports cooperative dispute resolution professionals, and promotes community awareness of constructive conflict resolution. Mediation is appropriate for any type of dispute. Our mediator members practice in a variety of areas, including family, business, workplace, and landlord/tenant.
Mediation is a cost-effective, fair, efficient, and confidential process for resolving disagreements. The mediator, as an impartial third party, helps people find mutually acceptable resolutions to disputes. 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 the 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.
