Robert A. Folger. Transformative mediation seeks to empower and recognize the parties to a conflict. 838/ref dp ob title bk. This book explains the transformative mediation process, contrasting it with problem-solving mediation. Although the book is not a practical guide to transformative mediation, it contains recommendations on how to exercise this approach in mediating conflicts.

That volume first articulated the "transformative model" of mediation, which greatly humanized the vision of how the mediation process could help parties in conflict. In the past decade, the transformative model has proved itself and gained increasing acceptance. It is now being used in such diverse arenas as workplace, community, family, organizational, and public policy conflicts, among others.

The Promise of Mediation provides a road map for mediating workplace .

The Promise of Mediation provides a road map for mediating workplace disputes in corporate America. Rather than pushing parties to settle, transformative mediation provides a process for employees to really work through their differences¾so they can move forward with a positive outlook and get back to business productively. When we use the transformative model, we’re offering a form of help that no one else in society is offering to our fellow citizens. In this book, Bush and Folger help us re-imagine mediation within a relational framework where emotions and painful histories are essential features of the conflict transformation process.

To address the conflicts that arise from nationalism effectively, mediators must consider several factors: the transformation of social instability into nationalistic tensions, extrapunitive ways of addressing guilt about the past, the tendency to find an enemy, and the shifting of individual. responsibility to an omnipotent patriarchal society. Particular attention is given to the Oslo negotiations, their forerunners, and subsequent.

The award-winning first edition of The Promise of Mediation,published ten years ago, is a landmark classic that changed thefield's understanding of the theory and practice of conflictintervention. That volume first articulated the "transformativemodel" of mediation, which greatly humanized the vision of how themediation process could help parties in conflict. In the pastdecade, the transformative model has proved itself and gainedincreasing acceptance. It is now being used in such diverse arenasas workplace, community, family, organizational, and public policyconflicts, among others.

In this new edition, the authors draw on a decade of work intheory development, training, practice, research, and assessment topresent a thoroughly revised and updated account of thetransformative model of mediation and its practical application,including

a compelling description of how the field has moved towardincreasing acceptance of the transformative modela new and clearer presentation of the theory and practices oftransformative mediation, with many concrete examplesa new case study that provides a vivid picture of the model inpractice, with a commentary full of new information about how touse it effectivelyclarifications of common misconceptions about the modela vision for the future that shows how the model can coexistwith other approaches and where the "market" for transformativemediation is emergingThis volume is a foundational resource on transformative practice,for both readers of the first edition and new readers - includingmediators, facilitators, lawyers, administrators, human resourceprofessionals, policymakers, and conflict resolution researchersand educators. More generally, this book will strike a chord withanyone interested in humanizing our social institutions andbuilding on a relational vision of society.
Reviews about The Promise of Mediation: The Transformative Approach to Conflict (7):
Ballagar
It is a good book. Very detailed of the benefits of the mediation process and outcomes you can expect from the process. Very good book for a student or anyone who desires to understand the mediation process.
Malogamand
It was well worth the time to read this book. The book makes the case for Transformative mediation, and shows how letting go of a strict and strongly held focus on settlements, and control. The mediator can make room for a transformative mediation where the focus is more “client centered” on each participant in the mediation. By “mirroring” their respectives ideas and feelings, they get more clear, and with a more clear view of their own standpoint, they can feel empowered and more safe, which can lead to less defensiveness and sometimes more recognition of the other side's perspective, and flexibility in their actions. That in turn when happens sometimes/often lead to a de escalation of the conflict. And then sometimes settlement.
Process oriented mediation.
This makes sense to me.

What I am still chewing on:
Unclear standpoint in the book regarding what client groups can benefit from Transformative mediation.
The case is made for no selection regarding what type of clients the method can be applied for.
And then the book in one single case points to Transformative mediation is insufficient alone in regard to battered women.

My understanding of it from the book that there is a conflict between the naive view of conflict in the ideology behind transformative mediation (everybody have the same humanity/potential for making peace), and violent high conflict cases.
The underlying philosophy of the book with the feminine/relational view of human interaction, that fails to ankownlogde human diversity. It stand for a romantic view of human nature that is not in line with evolutionary theory (or the picture the bible paints of humanity after eden), history or everdy life. Some people are more calm, some people are more aggressive, some are more egocentric, some are more caring.
It is an valid evolutionary strategy to be group centered, and altruistic, it is is an valid evolutionary strategy to be group centered, manipulative, aggressive and parasitic. (If psychopathy and egocentrisme did not “work” evolution would have made these traits extint in human nature 1000 of years ago)

Transformative mediation as shown in this book with is cases seem to work on “normal” people (and actors with no real conflict) with average to high intelligence. With a normal prosocial personality.
Low to medium conflict.

Fairly fast shipping. I was in a hurry to get the book, but it did come in the time window they said. The book was a good read. It had a lot of examples as to how to do transformative mediation.

Great Condition!1
First thanks for the encouragement to read this book from my Brother-N-Law.
I finished reading it after having it in my possession for almost two weeks and what a relief to get through it.
Although somewhat dry the real part that was interesting was the “Purple House with Julie, Elizabeth, and Bernice. “Putting Transformative Theory in Practice Parts One and Part two”.
The authors have a way of presenting the case and building on the information that is ultimately connected with chapters 4 and 5 so that you understand the gist of the book.
For me also knowing the various theories such as Carol Gilliam (Feminist) in what I learned from other course that I’ve taken was important. Bottom line is you need trust, and you have to allow yourself to stay neutral in transformative approach to conflict.
What I found was that I was hoping that some of what I read would transition itself into training on conflict resolution and that this book will help facilitate my learning experience.
Unfortunately, I did not; however being neutral is a key component that I have taken away into conflict resolution.
