The Middle Voice: Mediating Conflict Successfully, 3rd Edition



Events that divide communities lace our history. Mediators wonder whether they might positively assist community leaders in dealing with these challenges. In the third edition of The Middle Voice, Stulberg and Love systematically identify how a mediator constructively helps local stakeholders strengthen their resiliency to successfully address such matters.

Everyone mediates. The only question is: how well? Whether you want to be a better professional mediator or, in your role as supervisor, co-worker, parent, organizational leader, or community or political activist, you want to more successfully manage conflict, this book is for you. It is written in a clear, engaging style. Through its diverse examples and focus on concrete problem-solving strategies and tactics, it is a relevant, effective guide for any citizen. With its important new chapter providing guidance for constructive engagement in conflicts that polarize communities, The Middle Voice describes the role of a mediator and the skills and knowledge necessary to conduct a successful process. In a historical era of polarized tensions and escalating conflict, The Middle Voice is an essential read for gaining confidence in, and knowledge about, resolving conflicts constructively and fairly.
