mediation

Mediation is an alternative dispute resolution process where people who don’t agree on something meet with someone called a mediator. The mediator is a neutral person trained to help people agree on their issues without taking sides. The mediator’s goal is to help them find a solution that they agree on. A mediator does not make decisions or force anyone to agree to anything.

A mediator is sometimes also called a facilitator.
