Class,If a mediator were to act as the salesman making the promises and instantly breaking the promises in the video, would the parties be set back in their effort to resolve their dispute? Explain your answer.The credibility of the mediator is damaged when they do this. The trust between the mediator and the parties would be diminished. If the mediator acts as a salesperson making promises and then breaking them, the parties should terminate mediation. The parties will be set back in the fact that they must start the process over. If they decide not to terminate and stay with the mediator, trust will have to be rebuilt between the mediator and parties. The only promises that amediator should be making are that the session will be upheld to the standards as outlined by CRDC or ABA. Mediation is about trust and open communication and without it the process is null.
