Are you preparing to enter into mediation for divorce proceedings, custody issues or other reasons? Does the thought of mediation seem somewhat overwhelming? Before I became a therapist I worked as a paralegal in a variety of settings, including mediations. Mediations can be time-consuming, frustrating and highly conflictual. But they don't necessarily have to be! Seeking professional mental health help before entering into mediation can help to prepare you for the emotional strain that may accompany the meeting itself, allowing you to be in the right mindset. Learn what typically goes on at a mediation, as well as coping skills to use before, during and after.
