In their Mediation column, Abby Tolchinsky and Ellie Wertheim, partners at Family Mediation, write that in a typical mediation, the process happens in the context of a complex, interdependent range of issues. A final resolution on any one issue often depends on give and take in some other area. But sometimes, a single issue dominates, and there is no counter-balancing issue that provides a basis for negotiating or trading.
