Facilitative mediation is based on the belief that, with neutral assistance, people can work through and resolve their own conflicts. In a facilitative mediation, the mediator will take an active role in controlling the “process.” Process means things like setting the ground rules for how the problem will be solved. The mediator asks questions to identify the interests of the parties and the real issues in the disagreement. The mediator helps the parties explore solutions that benefit both parties (sometimes called “win/win” solutions). In a facilitative mediation, the mediator does not offer an opinion on the strengths and weaknesses of the parties’ cases. The mediator does not suggest solutions.
