Conflict Resolution Center authors chapters on transformative mediation

Conflict Resolution Center’s (CRC) Director Kristine Paranica and CRC Board Member James Antes, Chester Fritz Distinguished Professor of Psychology & Peace Studies, have authored three chapters in a new publication titled Transformative Mediation: A Sourcebook. Resources for Conflict Intervention Practitioners and Programs.

The chapters written by Antes are “Assessing Transformative Practice: Methods and Approaches” and “The Experience of Interpersonal Conflict: A Qualitative Study.”

Paranica penned a chapter, “Lessons Learned of Mediation in Indian Country: Exploring Process and Theory in Relation to American Indian Values and Processes.”

The book was published by the Institute for the Study of Conflict Transformation (ISCT) and by the Association for Conflict Resolution.

Other leaders in the field have touted this book as “the richest, most engaging and comprehensive resource that is available about the theory and practice of transformative mediation,” and, “The Sourcebook is essential reading to anyone interested in mediation.”

The book is available through the CRC or the ISCT.
