Abstract

The practice of alternative dispute resolution in general, and mediation in particular, is gaining currency and popularity within many segments of the American and international communities, probably as a result of dissatisfaction with court-based mediation.

This article discusses mediation with particular emphasis on transformative mediation which bears a resemblance to Gestalt applications to client work, but lacks a coherent theory of practice. The author also proposes ways in which Gestalt theories apply to and strengthen the practice of mediation.
