Mediation work is far more successful for couples, families, groups, committees, than a counselor. Why? It’s simple. Good counselors do good work…with the individual. They work with how the individual sees their world, how they react independently, and what they do with their behavior. It’s a look at the individual. Mediation work is a focus on the issue or conflict between or among people.
Here at the Karleen Andresen organization, we believe that conflict can happen with one or more. Sometimes it’s as simple as the voices in your head, or it can be between two people, or among a group. What’s most important is activating the support to help you get to the end result.
For example, someone asked, “I just can’t figure out how to get through the pain so I can see the good.” We see people come to us with these struggles daily, and yet, we can help them get whole.
