Are discount mediators really as desirable as their decorated counterparts? According to potential clients: 'almost.' Check out all the interesting insights from our commissioned survey.
When deciding whether to use a mediator for a personal conflict, which factor is most important to you: Convenience, Cost, Credentials, or Consumer Critiques? 

+Advancing Dispute Resolution posed this question to the folks at +Google Consumer Surveys who secured responses from over 1,500 of your friends, neighbors, and co-workers across the U.S. Their response: 40% consider mediator credentials to be most important, while 31% choose to weigh costs first. Not terribly surprising overall, but supportive of the field's slow push toward increasing mediator credentialing and professionalization, including initiatives from such outfits as +ACR Staff, +ABADisputeResolution, and +NAFCM

As part of Advancing Dispute Resolution's commitment to sharing interesting insights with the field, we're making the entire report available for folks to peruse. Compare response variances by age, gender, income, and location: http://goo.gl/On4Xjp Enjoy!

Through the coordination of local dispute resolution programs, court rosters, mediation clinics, and more, volunteer mediators serve those in conflict. Part of the local communities they serve, these volunteers would ideally be representative of those communities' rich diversity.
