which was established in Israel by Dr. David Silvera in 1986, has been functioning as a center for mediation, dispute resolution and training since 1998.
Our aim is to further awareness of the mediation process as an alternative to courtroom procedures. We offer professionals and business people the opportunity to acquire the tools to embark on a career in alternative dispute resolution, and/or to enhance their management skills in their current occupation.
Through a comprehensive program of seminars and workshops, we also promote the fundamental values of mediation – dialogue, cooperation, mutual respect and tolerance – within Israeli society and internationally.
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a system of conflict resolution by consent. During the mediation process, the mediator, a neutral third party, assists the sides in conflict to forge a solution in order to resolve their disagreement, taking into consideration their individual interests.
Utilizing specialized techniques, the mediator facilitates effective interpersonal communication, understanding and cooperation between parties.
Our Professional Staff
Our mediation team is composed of professionals from all walks of life: attorneys, accountants, economists, engineers, marketing consultants, agronomists, insurance agents, psychologists, educators, and others.
All experts in their respective fields, they are also graduates of accredited mediation courses, are registered within the list of mediators of the courts, and have successfully settled numerous conflicts in a variety of spheres.
