Langston1 Eric S. Langston Communication and Conflict Dr. Joseph Folger Mediation Analysis Paper April 19, 2011 On April 07, 2011, I attended a mediation session at Tuttleman Counseling Services with my partner Cindy Lin. My partner and I role played as if we were dating, and while dating, I opened a line on my cell phone account so that Cindy was able to have a cell phone.

I believe this was a good scenario because it was complicated, but not too difficult to comprehend. Typically, there are many circumstances that may come to surface when a relationship ends. Seeing that many issues come up when a break up occurs, Cindy and I decided to free lance and randomly make complaints about one another. We brought up things that we did not like about each other, with the hopes that the peer mediators would see that there were many issues in our relationship; which ultimately resulted in our breakup. It was my intention to prove that the cell phone issue was the only component that caused me to be in communication with Cindy. The cell phone was the only reason why we still needed to keep a line of
