Description of Practice

Resolution Point was founded in 2007 to provide mediation, resolution consultation and group facilitation services.

Most people see disagreement and confrontation as something to be avoided at all costs. But it can't always be avoided. And the effort to avoid it more often than not only  postpones the conflict, increasing the stress and ultimately the cost for resolution. Resolution Point takes a more optimistic approach: With disagreement comes opportunity. 

Each conflict is different with its own personalities, history, prejudices, expectations, communication techniques (or lack of them), unique resources, and unique needs for those limited resources.

Our approach to each conflict is to:

Understand the points of conflict.
Find common ground.
Identify all assets (financial and otherwise) so that the "pie" to be divided is as large as possible.
Help the participants identify their needs and interests and find ways to present those needs and interest so that they can be "heard" by the other participant(s).
Avoid conversations about history ("who's at fault?") so that the focus is on moving forward.
Draft agreements that have a great chance of working even in an often unpredictable future.
All while recognizing that your ability to pay for mediation is often limited.

We combine practicality (what have we seen work and what hasn't) with creativity, often guiding our clients toward solutions that share successful solutions from past situations while taking into account our clients' specific situations.
