Introduction: the successful development of any activity, including activities in the social sphere, is impossible without its introduction into the technological discourse. Using the experience in the legal and psychological science the author has set the goal to explore the technology in the mediation activities. As a task the author has conducted the research of the individual mediation techniques. Methods: the methodological basis for the research is a set of the following methods of scientific knowledge: the comparative and scientific method, the methods of systemacity and analysis. Results: the author suggests classifying the technology into two types: technology as a method and technology as a tool. In turn, the author distinguishes the following types of the mediation technology as a method: echo technique, caucus, externalization, deconstruction and rewriting. Following the logic of the technological approach, there has been shown the algorithm of the use of such a technology as mediation: echo technique and caucus. There has been proposed the three-part algorithm for the deployment of each mediation technology. In developing these technologies there have been defined the shortcomings of each of them. Conclusions: the technological approach to the mediation activities is very promising both from the standpoint of the science in which there occur the identification and fixation of the mediation techniques and from the law enforcement practice where these technologies can be applied.

Key words: mediation, technology, echo-tech, caucus, externalization, deconstruction, rewriting.
