Conflict is a natural part of human interaction. Whether guiding a client through stormy legal seas as a legal professional or mediating disputes as an HR professional, individuals whose work requires them to manage conflict must be equipped with a solid understanding of its causes and its progression. Mediators must be able to help parties approach disputes cooperatively rather than as adversaries in order to arrive at win/win solutions.

Choices in Approaching Conflict: Understanding the Practice of Alternative Dispute Resolution takes a systematic approach to analyzing the elements of conflict and explores both the individual and systemic responses to it. It covers foundational negotiation skills and strategies and includes an in-depth introduction to mediation as a viable response to conflict. Readers will gain an appreciation of the potentially challenging effects of culture, gender, and power on any negotiation or mediation process, and acquire strategies to respond accordingly.

Choices in Approaching Conflict explores applications of mediation in the areas of community, business, and restorative justice and examines the ethical and legal considerations required by the practice of mediation as a profession.
