Each different type of dispute requires different skills from an experienced mediator. Tiernan Mediation will adapt the mediation process to suit the dispute. We will draw on all or part of the different styles of mediation which are summarised below.

Facilitative Mediation, “Harvard Model” Mediation

An interest based problem solving mediation where parties work toward a mutually beneficial solution.

Evaluative Mediation

Where the parties rely on the mediator’s expertise to help guide the parties. This is often used in “legal rights” cases.

Transformative Mediation

This type of mediation deals with underlying causes of disputes where part of the solution may call for changed behaviour. Particularly useful in relationship disputes.

Settlement Mediation

This mediation has a strong emphasis on bargaining often associated with money related legal disputes and is positioning negotiation rather than mutual interests related negotiation.
