    Winner of the 2009 CPR Award for Outstanding Book

    “I picked up Bernard Mayer’s new book last spring, and here is the bottom line: its impact on my practice was instant…What is more, the impact has been enduring. It has changed how I think about and talk about the work I do….”
    — Sheila Heen in Negotiation Journal, January 2010

     

    In this groundbreaking book, Bernard Mayer, a pioneer in the field of conflict resolution, offers a new paradigm for dealing with long-term disputes. Mayer explains that when dealing with enduring conflict, mediators and other conflict resolution specialists need to move past the idea of how quickly they can resolve the conflict. Instead, they should focus on how they can help people prepare to engage with an issue over time. Once their attention is directed away from a speedy resolution to a long-term approach, new avenues of intervention become apparent.
