    Although transformative mediation is widely recognized as one of the main approaches to mediation, it’s also widely misunderstood. In this talk, certified transformative mediator Tara West 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.

    **Pending CME credit approval by the Supreme Court of Virginia**

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