Conflicts are common problems which can be resolved with mediation. Learn about the range of interpersonal conflicts and share your experiences. Have you experienced conflicts with friends and/or family members? Do you know people who have experienced conflicts with a friend and/or family member? Share your ideas and learn from others.
"Conflict, or more specifically, interpersonal conflict, is a fact of life, and particularly of organisational life. It often emerges more when people are stressed, for example, when there are changes on the horizon, or when everyone is under pressure because of a looming deadline. However, conflict can also arise in relationships and situations outside work" available at https://www.skillsyouneed.com/ips/conflict-and-mediation.html (Skill You Need)
Anyone can be a mediator. You do not need any license or certificate to be a mediator. Simply, there is no legal requirement to be a mediator.
See this statement from MediationCareer.Org, "If you’re wondering what it takes to become a mediator, the first thing you should know is that you can declare yourself a mediator and practice as such at will. That is to say, there are no federal or state laws that prohibit the practice of mediation. In this way, mediation is like professional coaching: Anyone can do it" (http://www.mediationcareer.org/become-a-mediator.php, accessed on October 27, 2017).
Family, the Place of Forgiveness
”There is no perfect family. We do not have perfect parents, we are not perfect, we do not marry a perfect person or have perfect children. We have complaints from each other. We disappointment each other. So there is no healthy marriage or healthy family without the exercise of forgiveness. Forgiveness is vital to our emotional health and spiritual survival. Without forgiveness the family becomes an arena of conflict and a stronghold of hurt.
Without forgiveness, the family becomes ill. Forgiveness is the asepsis of the soul, the cleansing of the mind and the liberation of the heart. Whoever does not forgive does not have peace in the soul nor communion with God. Hurt is poison that intoxicates and kills .Keeping heartache in the heart is a self destructive gesture. Its autophagy. Those who do not forgive are physically, emotionally and spiritually ill.
That is why the family must be a place of life, not of death; territory of cure not of illness; stage of forgiveness and not guilt. Forgiveness brings joy where sorrow has produced sadness; Healing where sorrow has caused diseases”.
