We introduce a new iterative method for approximating a locally unique solution of variational inclusions in Banach spaces by using generalized divided differences of the first order. This method extends a method considered by Traub  (in the scalar case) and by Potra  (in the Banach spaces case) for solving nonlinear equations to variational inclusions. An existence-convergence theorem and a radius of convergence are given under some conditions on divided differences operator and Lipschitz-like continuity property of set-valued mappings. The R-order of the method is equal to the unique positive root of a certain cubic equation, which is $1.839..., and as such it compares favorably to related methods such as the Secant method which is only of order $1.618....
