In Family Therapy, the family is viewed as a system rather than simply the sum of its individual members. Consequently, family therapy takes place with various family members present and focuses on the relationships within the family unit. It may be either the primary focus of treatment or used as a supplement to individual therapy. Rather than view problems as being caused or owned by a particular family member, family therapy works to identify the means by which relationships and individual problems are caused and/or maintained by family dynamics.
Mediation utilizes a neutral third party specifically trained to help individuals resolve their issues in their family disputes, conflicts and/or divorce. The mediator facilitates communication between and among the parties by making sure that each party is given uninterrupted time to speak, asking individuals to restate or explain a point when necessary and asking questions to make communications clear. The mediator also provides information about the legal system, how issues may be viewed by lawyers or judges and what alternatives there may be for resolving perplexing or thorny issues. The mediator will also refer individuals to third party experts as necessary, help individuals to develop a Memorandum of Understanding and refer them to their attorneys for review of the document.
