Mediation Misconceptions

        I have often found it curious that what I see as the two biggest misconceptions about mediation are completely contradictory.  I will first preface what follows by stating that this is not based on a qualitative or quantitative analysis of general public perceptions of mediation. Rather, this is based on my own experience with clients I have seen and spoken to over the last 20+ years of doing mediation.

Misconception #1:  Mediation only works if you agree.
