Humanistic Mediation

Mark S. Umbreit, Ph.D.Center for Restorative Justice & Peacemaking

"Humanistic mediation represents a “dialogue-driven” rather than a “settlement-driven” form of conflict resolution.

It focuses on the importance of meeting with the parties individually and in-person prior to the joint mediation session to listen to their story, build rapport, explain the process, and prepare them for engagement in a mediated dialogue.

It is a nondirective style of mediation in which the parties are primarily speaking to each other with minimal intervention by the mediator.

The mediator maintains an attitude of unconditional positive regard and concern for all parties while remaining impartial (i.e., not taking sides). "
