Mediation: n. negotiating and solving differences of fact(s) and/or opinion(s) frequently with the help of a lawyer’s advice and/or ending a dispute with a mutual agreement with the help of a third party
A mediator is frequently a human with expertise in resolving disputes such as a lawyer who can help disputing parties to reach a settlement or mutual agreement when the parties can’t reach agreement on their own.
In offspring disputes a parent is frequently the mediator and in employee disputes the boss can sometimes be the mediator who helps resolve a dispute. In a disagreement between a doctor and patient another doctor may become the mediator or just be a second opinion which helps to resolve a medical issue.
There can be more than one mediator such as both parents mediating the dispute between offspring but it is a relatively rare exception and not the general rule and one mediator is usually used.
