A Brief Take on Transformative Mediation Basics

Posted by attorney Daniel Simon

There's a lot of confusion out there about transformative mediation. A common misconception is that the transformative mediator pushes for improved relationships.

You'll see that the tranformative model's primary difference from other approaches is that it focuses on supporting, but never pushing, parties in whatever direction they want to go. (And this support usually allows parties to get to great places, including durable settlements, and, where appropriate, improved relationships).
