Transformative models of mediation are increasingly used in community conflict, workplace disputes, victim-offender confernecing and complex family conflict. In a transformative model, the mediator's role is to foster empowerment and recognition in the parties; this is done by encouraging parties to communicate and make decisions more effectively, subject to their own choices and limits. This form of mediation does not focus on resolution but changes in the individual and group dynamics that can lead to social change as well. This unit focuses on the underpinning theory and skills used in transformative mediation with a particular focus on social conflict theory, recognition and empowerment approaches.
