Empowering people to transform themselves by defining problems and goals in their own terms

The transformative model of mediation allows the parties to transform themselves by defining problems and goals in their own terms by working to identify solutions, or even deciding to not resolve a conflict, parties become empowered. 

The transformative model of mediation ‘…embraces a different set of values from the individualistic problem-solving approach enshrined in other models…’ of mediation (Spencer, D. and Hardy, S, 2009; pp 167). The parties usually come to recognise the views of the other party in the process and are then able to retain a better relationship post mediation, particularly where children are involved.

This approach helps improve communication and decision-making, to foster empowerment and recognition, enabling you and the other party the ability to approach your current problem, as well as later problems, with a stronger, more open view.
