Long practiced in leading tough discussions between fractured parties around the world, Schirch and Campt offer the tools necessary to transform dialogue between parties, facing a difficult discussion.
Clear and easy-to-use.
The word "dialogue" suffers from over-use, yet its practice is as transforming and as freshly hopeful as ever. Authors Schirch and Campt demonstrate dialogue's life and possibilities in this clear and absorbing manual: "Dialogue allows people in conflict to listen to each other, affirm their common ground, and explore their differences in a safe environment."
Schirch has worked throughout the Southern hemisphere in peacebuilding projects. Campt has focused on racial and class reconciliation in American cities.
