Mediation is a way of resolving disputes.  Through mediation, people with a disagreement or problem talk about it, try to think of possible solutions, discuss how and whether the solutions would work, and try to reach an agreement.  They do this with the help of the mediator who keeps them on task and encourages them to speak honestly and respectfully with each other.
