THIS CASE IS A NUTSHELL
Three months ago a roommate lost her job, and stopped paying her 50% share of the rent to her roommate/cousin.
Both cousins would like to continue being roommates, but their relationship is now so bad they can’t even talk to each other.
LESSONS LEARNED (Discussed During the Debriefing Session)
- How to address both substantive and relational issues during mediation.
- Why the mediator later realized he could have paid more attention to the parties’ feelings and need to be heard.
- What does success mean in mediation – for the mediator and for the parties?
- What happens when the mediator spends much more time in private meeting with one party than with the other.
