In this volume, nine renowned experts delineate their theoretical or methodological approach of Aikidô in potentiating constructive handling of social conflicts. The authors depict the contribution of the Japanese self-defensive art Aikidô to the theory and practice of conflict transformation. The concept of Elicitive Conflict Transformation (Lederach, Dietrich) necessarily calls for a revised understanding of applied peace work and a new personal profile of the conflict worker. This is the point where Aikidô and conflict/peace work meet.
Winfried Wagner, Dipl.-Psych., is a psychotherapist in private practice, certified in Clinical Gestalt Therapy, and Aikidô teacher (7th degree black belt) at the international M.A. program "Peace Studies" at the University of Innsbruck, Austria.

Editorial Reviews

"AiKiDô could be a valuable addition to the tool boxfor psychologists who are interested in expanding their repertoire of conflictmanagement skills. With the current scarcity of research on aikido and itseffects in an era of evidence-based approaches, the guidelines and methodsprovided in this book could be valuable resources for researchers andpractitioners of aikido who may want to strengthen the evidence on thecontribution of aikido to psychology." (Sombat Tapanya, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 60(40), December, 2015)
