Abstract
Using Bush and Folger’s transformative framework and psychological theory, the authors posit that mediation can play a role in changing the behavior of incarcerated juveniles by its focus on empathy and self-empowerment. After a brief description of their mediation clinic in Juvenile Hall, the authors assess the effects of the clinic in transforming its participants through data gathered.
