Revue de presse

"I recommend this book as it provokes creative thought, encompasses positive aspirational goals and broadens the perspective of practicing mediators." ( IAM Mediation Newsletter; 12/1/2004)

Présentation de l'éditeur

The award–winning first edition of The Promise of Mediation, published ten years ago, 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.

In this new edition, the authors draw on a decade of work in theory development, training, practice, research, and assessment to present a thoroughly revised and updated account of the transformative model of mediation and its practical application, including

  • a compelling description of how the field has moved toward increasing acceptance of the transformative model
  • a new and clearer presentation of the theory and practices of transformative mediation, with many concrete examples
  • a new case study that provides a vivid picture of the model in practice, with a commentary full of new information about how to use it effectively
  • clarifications of common misconceptions about the model
  • a vision for the future that shows how the model can coexist with other approaches and where the "market" for transformative mediation is emerging
This volume is a foundational resource on transformative practice, for both readers of the first edition and new readers – including mediators, facilitators, lawyers, administrators, human resource professionals, policymakers, and conflict resolution researchers and educators. More generally, this book will strike a chord with anyone interested in humanizing our social institutions and building on a relational vision of society.

Roughly thirty-five years ago, in a variety of places around the United States, many groups and individuals became interested in a process of dispute resolution called mediation. Lire la première page

HASH(0x9af42a50) étoiles sur 5 Valuable New information for Mediators 10 mai 2005
Par Aurora Denny - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This newly revised edition of The Promise of Mediation offers a wealth of new information on the priniciples of transformative conflict intervention. Many readers may not be aware that the revised edition actually contains almost entirely new material, reflecting new understandings of transformative mediation that have developed since the publication of the first edition. Bush and Folger offer new specifics for practice in the transformative framework of mediation through a carefully analyzed case study, in which we can see details of the "small steps" of conflict transformation. They also discuss the impact that the transformative movement has had on the field as a whole, and debunk some common misconceptions about the transformative framework. I have especially enjoyed the last chapter, which addresses, more completely than anything in the first edition, the deep underlying values that have led to the articulation of a transformative vision for mediation, and looks at possibilities for the future of the field.

This is definitely a book I would recommend to anyone interested in mediation, conflict, or just the interaction of human beings.

HASH(0x9af14e64) étoiles sur 5 A Huge Step Forward in the Art and Science of Mediation 16 novembre 2004
Par Daniel Simon - Publié sur
Format: Relié
I'm grateful to the authors for the significant advance in mediation thinking that this book represents. This new edition has the potential to move the entire field toward a deeper, more powerful understanding. With the original edition, and again with this one, Bush and Folger have provided great clarity to a topic that, until now, has been muddled. While other mediators and writers succumb to the pressures of conflict and become part of the problem, these authors instruct us on how to remain true to the most important principles that lead to deep healing of human conflict. If I had the need, I would only hire a mediator who had read, studied, understood and embraced this book.

HASH(0x9af365a0) étoiles sur 5 A Worthwhile Sequel 25 janvier 2009
Par David A. - Publié sur
Format: Relié
This is the follow-up to the authors' watershed first edition of the book by the same name, and contrary to the fate of most sequels, this one's really worthwhile. Indeed, it's largely a new book, rather than a mere revision; it fully updates the reader on the journey and developments in "transformative mediation" over the decade since the authors' first book with the same title was published in 1995. For anyone with an interest in the transformative model of mediation (as contrasted with, for example, facilitative or evaluative mediation), this is the best, most comprehensive, and well-written volume available.

HASH(0x9b45e93c) étoiles sur 5 I am still chewing on it 18 mai 2014

It was well worth the time to read this book. The book makes the case for Transformative mediation, and shows how letting go of a strict and strongly held focus on settlements, and control. The mediator can make room for a transformative mediation where the focus is more “client centered” on each participant in the mediation. By “mirroring” their respectives ideas and feelings, they get more clear, and with a more clear view of their own standpoint, they can feel empowered and more safe, which can lead to less defensiveness and sometimes more recognition of the other side's perspective, and flexibility in their actions. That in turn when happens sometimes/often lead to a de escalation of the conflict. And then sometimes settlement.
Process oriented mediation.
This makes sense to me.

What I am still chewing on:
Unclear standpoint in the book regarding what client groups can benefit from Transformative mediation.
The case is made for no selection regarding what type of clients the method can be applied for.
And then the book in one single case points to Transformative mediation is insufficient alone in regard to battered women.

My understanding of it from the book that there is a conflict between the naive view of conflict in the ideology behind transformative mediation (everybody have the same humanity/potential for making peace), and violent high conflict cases.
The underlying philosophy of the book with the feminine/relational view of human interaction, that fails to ankownlogde human diversity. It stand for a romantic view of human nature that is not in line with evolutionary theory (or the picture the bible paints of humanity after eden), history or everdy life. Some people are more calm, some people are more aggressive, some are more egocentric, some are more caring.
It is an valid evolutionary strategy to be group centered, and altruistic, it is is an valid evolutionary strategy to be group centered, manipulative, aggressive and parasitic. (If psychopathy and egocentrisme did not “work” evolution would have made these traits extint in human nature 1000 of years ago)

Transformative mediation as shown in this book with is cases seem to work on “normal” people (and actors with no real conflict) with average to high intelligence. With a normal prosocial personality.
Low to medium conflict.

It is a good book. Very detailed of the benefits of the mediation process and outcomes you can expect from the process. Very good book for a student or anyone who desires to understand the mediation process.
