The highly anticipated second edition of Art and Practice of Mediation provides a practical and inclusive introduction to the field of mediation. Intended for a wide range of college and university courses, the text begins with a clear discussion of various approaches to dispute resolution, understanding conflict behaviour, and the key communication skills one requires when dealing with conflict. The authors then outline the specific stages and techniques involved in successful mediation, such as convening and cultivating dialogue, identifying key issues, and selecting appropriate processes. The text closes with a chapter, new to the second edition, on using mediation in organizations and communities, giving students a sense of the bigger picture in conflict resolution.

Each chapter in the second edition begins with learning objectives to help students identify the main points in the content, and ends with a chapter summary, discussion questions, scenario-based exercises, and further readings related to the chapter topic. For instructors, the text now comes with a full suite of ancillaries, including PowerPoint presentations, assignments, and detailed role-play exercises to use in class.
