Summary: For Alternative Dispute Resolution courses and Conflict Resolution courses.

Filling a void in the market, Conflict Diagnosis and Alternative Dispute Resolution uses the innovation of the Conflict Diagnosis concept to provide an in-depth appreciation of ADR processes. The survey takes a true developmental- and social-psychological perspective on the interdisciplinary topic of dispute resolution and prefaces descriptions of mediation, arbitration and other pr
ocesses with a comprehensive exploration of the theoretical and empirical basis for understanding their uses, misuses, indications and counterindications. The text's compelling presentation provides students with a thorough and complete approach to understanding the psychological dimensions of conflict, provides guidelines for evaluating and developing strategies and tactics to address interpersonal conflict, and provides a comprehensive survey of ADR processes, including a strong treatment of legal issues.

Features
  • Conflict Diagnosis approach--Provides the theoretical basis for conflict resolution and both concrete and experiential alternative dispute resolution.
    • Provides students with a practical skill that allows them to clarify the reasons for the conflict, the ultimate goals of the disputing parties and the impediments to effective resolution.
  • Perceptual and cognitive distortion as a primary issue in interpersonal conflict.
    • Enables students to appreciate the perceptual distortions that create the misimpression that competition is always the safest and best way to handle conflict and enables them to better understand the noncompetitive alternatives.
  • Comprehensive survey of ADR processes--e.g. Mediation, arbitration, nonbinding evaluation and hybrid processes.
    • Provides students with a thorough understanding of ADR including a review of the legal and ethical issues that confound ADR practice.
  • Logic and rigor emphasis--Combats the tendency in the field toward intellectual sloppiness. Figures and tables illustrate the logical typological organization of the work.
    • Provides students with a logical framework within which they can organize the ideas and facts that comprise the ADR field.
  • Innovative theory and metaphor.
    • Provides students with an interesting method of learning novel material.
  • Real-world examples--i.e. Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the War Against Terrorism.
    • Provides students with relevant fictionalized accounts that provide interest and motivate students to delve into the subject matter.
  • Experiential learning exercisese.g. Conflict Journal assignments ask students to choose an ongoing conflict in their own lives and apply what they are learning to the conflict.
    • Provides students with an application of concepts presented to their own lives, so that they can gain a more in-depth understanding of the material.
  • Extensive pedagogical aids--e.g. Bullet boxes, tabular information, New Yorker cartoons.
