Relationships, especially intimate relationships, can add meaning and value to our lives. At times they can also be difficult. With intimate relationships individuals often have habitual ways of relating to each other especially when conflict arises. These habitual ways of relating to conflict can produce similar outcomes and disagreements. It may seem at times that you are having the same “conversation” or “fight” with the same lack of resolution. It is easy to become caught in patterns that do not resolve the conflict and even worse, prolong them. There are consequences to these “negative” patterns. First the inherent pain and sense of loneliness that can result from the unresolved and ongoing conflict as well as a diminishing sense of hope.
The process of mediation allows individuals to hear each other, and to be heard in ways that each really want to be heard. Amazingly, sometimes seemingly miraculously, relationships are transformed and recreated.
