Facilitative mediation should be utilized in addressing OP’s piano sentimental attachment, and his formerpartner’s monetary reimbursement for his half of the piano. Facilitative mediation assesses each party’s grievance towards the piano. As the mediator utilizing facilitative mediation, they would gather prudent information that supports a problem-solving method (Goodman, 2012). According to Kathy Goodman, the mediator would use open-ended questions but does not engage in conversation (2012). This methodof questions and problem-solving will most likely lead to an agenda that outlines a self-determination agreement.Through the facilitative mediation, the subject is defined into three areas; piano, appraisal value, sentimental value. Each area is not more important than the other but has an importance on itself. The piano cannot be divided between the OP and the previous partner. OP’s sentimental value of the piano cannot be divided. The appraisal value of $25K -$30K is expensive, however it can be divided.
