How can I know that my problem will not be made public if I am involved in mediation?

By written agreement, everything said or disclosed during the Mediation Process remains confidential, unless there is a subsequent explicit agreement to allow disclosure either by the Mediator or other Stakeholders.

A second type of confidentiality arises if the Mediator chooses to meet with a Stakeholder in a private discussion or caucus. Whatever is confidentially disclosed to the Mediator during this private discussion also remains confidential.
