Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way
Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way presents readers with a proven paradigm for effective conflict resolution in all human systems called the Partnership Way. Within this model, individuals are encouraged to see those with whom they are experiencing conflict as partners and to identify conflict as an opportunity for personal and relational transformation. The Partnership Way features a strong theoretical foundation, presents a systemic approach to conflict resolution, and empowers individuals to lead more authentic lives.
The book is divided into four parts. Part One provides an overview of the Partnership Way, its theoretical foundation, and the key components of the model. In Part Two, readers learn how to apply the model to resolve interpersonal conflicts concerning wants, needs, values, and beliefs. Part Three demonstrates how to resolve intractable conflicts that involve unmet needs related to unhealed development traumas. The final part of the text focuses on the application of the Partnership Way to resolving conflicts in schools, professions, communities, cultures, nation-states, and the history of the human race.
Highly personal and experiential in nature, Conflict Resolution helps current and future practitioners in education, counseling, social work, psychology, and law to not only develop skillsets to guide clients through effective conflict resolution, but to successfully apply the skills to their own lives and relationships.
