Mediation is a one-on-one or small group meeting facilitated by a trained mediator. These interventions are typically designed to address a narrow range of issues with a collaborative, results-oriented approach. At its heart, mediation is simply a conversation. You bring to the table what you want, and leave with what you need.
Facilitated dialogues are medium to large-size group discussions facilitated by trained facilitators. These interventions address a range of predetermined and participant-identified issues with the goals of capturing a broad range of perspectives and moving the group forward with a shared process and purpose.
Restorative practices include a variety of interventions that can range from one-on-one to medium-sized groups facilitated by one or more trained facilitators. These interventions are often designed with participant input and typically focus on a broad range of deeply personal and consequential matters.
