Divorce Mediation & Workplace Mediation Services

Interpeople Inc is a Massachusetts company dedicated to conflict resolution in all its aspects - from prevention to resolution. Shuneet Thomson, PhD, founded Interpeople in 1996, after discovering there was no place for a dispute resolution specialist in the corporate world at that time.

Since its establishment, Interpeople has gained recognition in the mediation community. It has been listed among the top ADR companies in the Boston Business Journal's Book of Lists on five consecutive years while such a list was included in the Book of Lists.

Dr. Thomson has been a mediator since 1988. Recognized by clients for her informal and humorous style, she has mediated over 1,000 cases. These include workplace mediation, and about 700 divorce mediations by the end of 2012. Dr. Thomson believes mediation is a helping profession. People often come to her in distress over conflict that has gone on for years, or over the breakup of their marriage. Much of the initial anxiety is reduced by the first meeting. By the time they reach the end of the mediation, they have a sense of how their life will unfold, and much of the parties' anxiety is gone and their relationship improved.

Keep in mind: "Give peace a chance" does not mean "leave peace to chance." You need to act on conflict that persists and undermines.
S. Thomson

While you are encouraged to consult with Shuneet Thomson about any conflict situation in the community, business and family, Interpeople's primary focus is on divorce mediation (helping people who face divorce get through it in a decent way) and on workplace mediation and training, where Interpeople offers a comprehensive dispute resolution service.
