Gerneral Information about TM:

Transformative Mediation (TM) is an approach to conflict intervention that is used in a wide range of conflict intervention settings.  It is based on the relational view of conflict outlined in the book "The Promise of Mediation" by Robert A. Baruch Bush and Joseph P. Folger (Jossey-Bass, 2005). Transformative mediation has been used in family, civil, neighbor, divorce, youth, and multi-party disputes and has been adapted for conflict interventions that address team development and organizational disputes.
