Transformative Mediation: A Critique

September 1, 2007


Abstract:     
This article was written shortly after the publication of the Second edition of ‘The Promise of Mediation’. The article examines the book and its ideas from the perspective of a UK mediation practitioner. It considers the contribution the book has made to the development of mediation, both as a critical evaluation of existing practice and as an inspiration for practitioners, including the author. It describes three major critiques of The Promise of Mediation before turning to the question: does Transformative Mediation provide a coherent theory of mediation? In answering the question, the article considers what the urge for such a theory tells us about the stage of development of the mediation profession.
