Abstract:

In early 2005 Robert A. Baruch Bush and Joseph Folger released a new and revised edition of their important book The Promise of Mediation, first published in 1994. In the new edition they added a transcript of The Purple House Mediation, a video documenting a mediation session, accompanied with commentaries. In so doing, Bush and Folger have taken additional steps to put the transformative theory of mediation into practice. In this essay, I use The Purple House Mediation as a lens through which to examine some of the underpinnings of the transformative approach and the relationship between theories of mediation and the actual practice of mediation.
