Third-party intervention it is when a neutral party is asked to help resolve a conflict.

Third-party intervention, also known as conflict resolution or dispute resolution, is the process of involving a neutral third party to help resolve conflicts or disputes between two or more parties. The third party can facilitate communication, negotiate a settlement, or mediate the conflict to find a resolution that is satisfactory for all parties involved.

Examples of third-party intervention in psychology include:

  1. Mediation between divorced or separated parents to determine custody arrangements for their children.
  2. Conflict resolution between employees in the workplace, such as a manager mediating a dispute between two team members.
  3. Intervention by a mental health professional in family disputes, such as parent-child conflict or sibling rivalry.
  4. Conflict resolution in international disputes, such as a mediator facilitating peace talks between two warring nations.
  5. Intervention by a therapist or counselor to help resolve conflicts in personal relationships, such as between romantic partners or friends.

In all these examples, a neutral third party intervenes to facilitate communication, manage emotions, and guide the parties towards a mutually acceptable solution.
