WEBINAR: The What, Why, and How of Transformative Mediation

  • Virtual


Registration is closed

Although transformative mediation is widely recognized as one of the main approaches to mediation, it’s also widely misunderstood. In this talk, Tara West, certified as a transformative mediator by the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation, will attempt to bridge that gap by sharing what transformative mediation means today (which is not exactly what it meant 25 years ago), compare and contrast it with other mediation approaches, and explain why it’s the approach she now exclusively practices.

**Approved for 1.0 hours CME credit (0.0 ethics) by the Supreme Court of Virginia**

A recording of this webinar will be made available to registrants for 30 days post-webinar.
