This two-part article explores the confusion surrounding the idea of transformative mediation or transformation in mediation. Part 1 discusses the various meanings attributed to ‘transformation’ in mediation and proposes a specific definition for Transformative Mediation. Part 2 of this article, to appear in a future issue, will look at the role of the mediator and specific practices, and at training, certification and resources. This has some relevance for the discussion on mediation standards.
