Transformative mediation is an approach to managing conflict that many people have heard about, but that is frequently misunderstood.  In this webinar we explore the transformative approach to conflict and examine how transformative mediation works in practice. We consider the purpose and the interventions that are used, and why they are different from what happens in facilitative mediation.

In the webinar you will:

Explore the transformative approach to conflict, and discover the fundamentals of transformative mediation.

Compare the transformative approach with the facilitative approach to mediation.

Watch a short role play demonstrating some of the transformative mediation interventions.
