This hands-on text provides the theory, skills, and exercises to prepare readers for an array of conflict situations. It encourages developing professionals to see themselves as reflective practitioners in the roles of negotiators, mediators, and advocates.
"This text is unique in providing an overview of different forms of conflict resolution, aimed at 'helping professionals' so it is relevant for social workers, counselors, therapists, teachers, as well as mediators. It is also the only book with exercises and role plays that can be used in the classroom or in training."
"This book is excellently written with useful information, which will prompt students into further inquiry into the field of conflict resolution."
Barsky (social work, U. of Calgary) surveys a number of theoretical approaches to the professional practice of both contractual and emergent (i.e. where the role arises out of some other professional position) conflict resolution. After discussing concepts of professional awareness and conscious use of self, he devotes separate chapters to negotiation, mediation, and advocacy models of conflict resolution. Annotation c.
