Overview

Blending theory and research with practical application, Mediation Theory and Practice, Second Edition, by Suzanne Mc Corkle and Melanie J. Reese, provides a thorough introduction to today’s ever expanding world of mediation, including updated research and new cases for analysis. Innovative yet practical, research-based yet readable, the book provides an overview of the basic principles of mediation in a variety of contexts to help readers understand mediation and its role in today’s society. Throughout the book, the authors help readers develop foundational mediation skills, including issue identification, setting the agenda for negotiation, problem solving, settlement, and closure. Case studies and examples in every chapter, plus an appendix of role-playing scenarios, make this book ideal book for both college courses and certification training programs.
