Mediation is a flexible process that is used to settle differences in a whole range of situations. Often used when the two parties are unable to reach a compromise solution on their own and both percieve themselves as the injured person. 

Restorative meetings are more commonly used when harm has been caused by one party to another. The purpose of the meeting is to assist the person who has caused the harm to have a deeper understanding of the impact their actions have had on person who has been harmed.

Restorative Mediation is a hybrid approach of restorative practices and mediation. It is used when two parties have a deep emotional connection and there is a need to have a difficult conversation that requires listening and understanding from both parties. It involves a range of approaches which include;                                                                                                            Mediative skills and practices, restorative language, Affirmative statements, Restorative questions3 Way Shuffle approach, Shadow Listening Approach and Meetings of Understanding.
