About this product
- DescriptionDescription: Conflict is a rmal and predictable part of life. How we respond to it, however, determines whether or t the conflict will be destructive. Mediating Interpersonal Conflicts is an up-to-date presentation showing how the techniques of negotiation and mediation can be applied in resolving a wide range of conflicts in families, communities, schools, and workplaces. Dr. Umbreit t only clearly outlines the communication, negotiation, and mediation skills involved in effective resolution of interpersonal conflict, he moves the reader beyond the mechanics of mediation to what he calls a journey of the heart through a humanistic mediation model that addresses the emotional context of the conflict. Endorsements: Rather than a narrow 'techniques' approach to conflict resolution, Mark Umbreit provides readers with a broad understanding of the 'whys' of mediation. This is the heart and voice of a dedicated practitioner as well as a skilled observer. --Terry Amsler, Executive Director, The Community Board Program, San Francisco An excellent introduction to mediation and a firstrate teaching device. --Lois Gold, M.S.W., Past President, Academy of Family Mediators author, Between Love & Hate: A Guide to Civilized Divorce Clear, comprehensive and practical. Anyone working with people problems should have this book at their fingertips. --Dr. Thomas F. Christian, Unified Court System, State of New York, Director, Community Dispute Resolution Centers Program In highly readable prose, Dr. Umbreit articulates a clear set of values for an approach to mediation that enhances the participants' humanity and educates and equips people for changed behaviors and transformed relationships. --Dean Peachy, Program Director, The Network: Interaction for Conflict Resolution, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada About the Contributor(s): Mark Umbreit is the founding Director of the Center for Restorative Justice & Peacemaking at the University of Minnesota, School of Social Work.
