The main objective of this brief report was to share our experience, which started 19 years ago, with the creation, establishment and development of two programs. In the first one, mediation is used as the intervention method for a diversity of conflicts. The main purpose of the second one is developing the public police of the Judicial Branch pertaining to the use of mediation, arbitration and early neutral evaluation as alternative dispute resolution methods to the adjudication process that is typical of our court system. Both programs respond to a non-adversarial paradigm which is contrary to the adversarial paradigm that contextualizes support the judicial setting that houses both programs. One of the outstanding outcomes of our experiences has been the successful integration of these programs that, in spite of stemming from opposite, share a common goal: to serve as a from for the conflict resolution.

El objetivo de este informe breve es compartir nuestra experiencia, iniciada hace 19 años, con la creación, establecimiento y desarrollo de dos programas. En el primero utilizamos la medición como el método para intervenir en conflictos de naturaleza diversa. En el segundo establecemos la política pública de la Rama Judicial de Puerto Rico para fomentar el uso de la medición, el arbitraje y la evaluación neutral como métodos alternativos al proceso adjucativo tradicional de los tribunales. Ambos programas responden a un paradigma no-adversativo alterno y, en esencia, opuesto al paradigma adversativo que fundamenta y sostiene la estructura organizacional judicial que le sirve de marco y contexto a ambos programas. Esta experiencia ha tenido como resultado la integración de programas que, a pesar de originarse desde paradigmas diferentes, comparten un fin común: servir de foro y mecanismo para el manejo de conflictos.
