About Hutchinson Mediation Services
Mediation for Dispute Resolution.
Mediation is a cooperative form of dispute resolution that is non-coercive, voluntary and negotiated. Mediation relies on an unbiased and impartial facilitator. The facilitator works to clear away the difficult emotional and personal attachments that block a constructive and positive interaction to resolving the conflict. Facilitators do not give legal or financial advice. The facilitator works to create a pathway to resolution and allow issues to be aired constructively rather than destructively. Drew works to empower his clients to approach the conflict with constructive ideas and positive solutions. He helps to facilitate understanding and empathy in the communications. He guides the participants toward the possibility of a mutually satisfying agreement.
