Conflict and Dispute Resolution is a practical guide to understanding dispute resolution theory in the context of organisational, psychological and social work themes. It covers the spectrum of interventions; from the prevention of conflict, ignoring it, managing it through feedback, difficultconversations, self mediation, conflict coaching to facilitative processes such as dispute facilitation, mediation, concilliation and managing groups and multi party disputes.
Mieke Brandon and Leigh Robertson are practitioners with many years of experience as mediators, counsellors, trainers, coaches and mentors. They have created a comprehensive and stimulating text from their extensive involvement in the field.
