In this volume, nine rewned experts delineate their theoretical or methodological approach of Aikido in potentiating constructive handling of social conflicts. The authors depict the contribution of the Japanese self-defensive art Aikido to the theory and practice of conflict transformation. The concept of Elicitive Conflict Transformation (Lederach, Dietrich) necessarily calls for a revised understanding of applied peace work and a new personal profile of the conflict worker. This is the point where Aikido and conflict/peace work meet.
Winfried Wagner, Dipl.-Psych., is a psychotherapist in private practice, certified in Clinical Gestalt Therapy, and Aikido teacher (7th degree black belt) at the international M.A. program Peace Studies at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.
