Conflict resolution for the helping professions, 2d ed.

Barsky, Allan Edward.

Brooks/Cole Publishing


364 pages




Barsky (Florida Atlantic U. at Fort Lauderdale) introduces and compares four approaches to conflict resolution: power based, rights based, interest based, and transformative. After a brief review of terminology, roles, and theories, he discusses how helping professionals can integrate their existing knowledge and skills with the techniques of conflict resolution. He then presents individual treatments of negotiation, mediation, group facilitation, and advocacy. A new chapter for this edition looks at other methods, including fact finding, trust building, peacebuilding, parenting coordination, family group conferencing, and spiritual healing. The final chapter discusses ways helping professionals can encourage conflict resolution in their agencies and their communities.
