Bring a fresh approach to the bargaining table

Tap the transformative potential of mediation and discover the full promise of the mediation process. In this insightful work, the authors present an alternative theoretical framework that affords a deeper understanding of conflict and mediation –– one based on respect for personal strength and compassion for others. Drawing on their own experience and a wide body of research, they offer mediation practitioners, administrators, policy makers, and researchers a new and useful perspective on how mediation is currently practiced, how it could be structured to accomplish more, and how to refine the process for future application.

Review:

"A revolutionary book!" (B. Stephen Toben, program officer, The Hewlett Foundation)

"No practicing mediator, policy maker, court administrator or ADR program director can continue to perform his or her work without a careful reading of this remarkable book." (Joseph B. Stulberg, professor, Wayne State University, and past vice president, SPIDR)

"Simply excellent, and very much needed! There are virtually no theoretical or philosophical treatments of mediation in the field at this time that are so clearly articulated." (Margaret S. Herrman, professor, University of Georgia, and founder, National Conference on Peacemaking and Conflict Resolution)

"This will be a provocative book within the mediation community and is sure to stimulate considerable debate and discussion. I learned a great deal from it and I now think differently about mediation and about how to describe it to others." (Craig A. McEwen, professor, Bowdoin College, and coauthor, Mediation: Law, Policy, Practice.)
