A Guide to Effective Communication for Conflict Resolution introduces the 9 Principles that are also described on this site to help the reader develop a 'mindfulness' in relation to their communication in a way that supports the resolution of conflict. In this book
Alan shares his observations and learnings from working as a Mediator and Conflict Coach with regard to the ways that people become stuck in unresolved conflict but also how they go on to create more effective ways forward in their difficult situations.
"I think you put together so well all the essential components of
conflict transformation in a way which people can relate to and
understand. A brilliant book and I will recommend it to everyone."
Jo Berry - BuildingBridgesForPeace.org
As you go through the different pages giving examples of different areas in which unresolved conflict can occur, I think you will start to see that ineffective and destructive responses take a similar form in all these situations and how awareness of the Principles, Underlying Philosophies and the skills of Listening, Summarising and Questioning enable a return to constructive responses to occur.

Within the Helping Professions I include the following: Social Workers, Housing Officers, Police Officers, Teachers, Noise Team officers and any agency officers that may be drawn into disputes between members of the public through their role.
While we have high expectations of schools to 'teach children to live in society'...... the responsibility is elsewhere..... and it's not in the Family either.
The workplace is an area in which most people experience occasional or continual destructive responses to conflict. The Principles and Philosophies described on this site provide ways of understanding and improving the effectiveness of the communication and conflict resolution that occurs in the workplace.
These links take you to example areas in which the Principles of Effective Communication and Conflict Resolution can be applied but of course they apply in any area of human interaction not just those listed above.
