Change: The Boiling Frog Story
Everyone who comes to mediation is thinking about change: change in residence, change in time spent with children, change in health insurance coverage, change in employment, change in work schedule, change in marital status. For some these changes are welcome; for others these changes are unwelcome, nerve-wracking and scary. Mediation enables people to successfully plan and work out the best way to implement change.
