“The Promise of Mediation: The Transformative Approach to Conflict (Revised Edition)” by Professors Robert A. Baruch Bush and Joseph P. Folger, previously published in Arabic and Russian, and as an audiobook, is now under translation into German and Italian.
The award-winning “The Promise of Mediation” is a landmark classic that changed the field’s understanding of the theory and practice of conflict intervention. That volume first articulated the “transformative model” of mediation, which greatly humanized the vision of how the mediation process could help parties in conflict. In the past decade, the transformative model has proved itself and gained increasing acceptance. It is now being used in such diverse arenas as workplace, community, family, organizational, and public policy conflicts, among others.
