By: R. Cooper Shattuck and H. Harold Stephens

For example, the main room can be considered a conference room where all parties are together before. a mediation and where the mediator can speak to all parties at the same time. When it's time to split up the parties for private discussion, the mediator can start breakout rooms where the parties can talk privately, much like sending. the parties to individual conference rooms for in-person mediations The mediator can join (and leave) any of the breakout rooms as needed.
