Baltimore mediation takes a relational approach to conflicts, disputes, and difficult situations by bringing participants together and helping them prepare for quality interaction and face-to-face dialogue so that they can interact and negotiate on more authentic terms with the support and presence of a neutral third party. The firm was the first transformative mediation ADR firm in the U.
S. UU. The philosophy of Baltimore Mediation is that people have the ability to change the quality of their difficult, stagnant, or harmful interactions with the help of a neutral third party who believes in their ability to be neither a victim nor a victimizer. Problem solving, decision-making, and the conditions of an agreement under authentic terms are natural by-products of this approach. It is a relational approach initiated by founder Louise Phipps Senft.
Baltimore Mediation mediators, whether they work with two people or with a large group of people, focus on the quality of the interaction. They believe that clarity can arise from chaos and that changes in rigidity can occur when the neutral mediator focuses attention on opportunities for that transformation. For nearly 30 years, Baltimore Mediation has been a model of transformative mediation and relational practices across the country for families, business partners, and large institutions facing crisis or change. Led by founder Louise Phipps Senft, Baltimore Mediation is one of the most successful mediation firms in the U. And one of the largest and most influential mediation training programs in the U.
Baltimore Mediation specializes in divorce, family businesses, trusts and probate, employment, large-scale business disputes, academic departments, boards of directors, medical systems, and corporate executive teams - both nonprofit and for-profit - to help them navigate through conflict and crisis as well as through change and complexity. The relational approach allows clients to recreate cohesion so that they can make informed decisions to overcome complexity and conflict and emerge stronger and more resilient.
