Results: the author proposes the algorithm of introducing modes of thinking in the paradigm of the mediator. Conclusions: the presented mode approach in dealing with a conflict in the framework of mediation procedures as a theoretically developed and tested model can be recommended to mediators for developing their professional skills.
