About Transformative Mediation:
The Mediation Center of Dutchess County trains mediators in the transformative framework of conflict resolution, first articulated in the book "The Promise of Mediation" by Robert Baruch Bush and Joseph P. Folger. Within this framework, conflict is viewed as a crisis in human interaction and the mediator's role is to help people become clearer, make decisions and see the perspective of the other person whenever possible, oftentimes resulting in a change in the way they relate to each other. One outcome of transformative mediation is a written agreement, however parties may make other decisions about the outcome of the conflict. Transformative mediators help parties think and consider what is important to them, how they see things differently, and what they choose to do about the situation by supporting the conversation between the them.
