    Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way presents readers with a proven paradigm for effective conflict resolution in all human systems called the Partnership Way. Within this model, individuals are encouraged to see those with whom they are experiencing conflict as partners and to identify conflict as an opportunity for personal and relational transformation. The Partnership Way features a strong theoretical foundation, presents a systemic approach to conflict resolution, and empowers individuals to lead more authentic lives.

    The book is divided into four parts. Part One provides an overview of the Partnership Way, its theoretical foundation, and the key components of the model. In Part Two, readers learn how to apply the model to resolve interpersonal conflicts concerning wants, needs, values, and beliefs. Part Three demonstrates how to resolve intractable conflicts that involve unmet needs related to unhealed development traumas. The final part of the text focuses on the application of the Partnership Way to resolving conflicts in schools, professions, communities, cultures, nation-states, and the history of the human race.

    Highly personal and experiential in nature, Conflict Resolution helps current and future practitioners in education, counseling, social work, psychology, and law to not only develop skillsets to guide clients through effective conflict resolution, but to successfully apply the skills to their own lives and relationships.

    “Conflict Resolution: The Partnership Way provides students with an interesting analysis that considers conflict from the perspective of the individual and what each of us brings into our relationships and engagements with others that shape how we approach, think about, and behave in conflict.”
    Loraleigh Keashly, Professor of Communication, Wayne State University

    "This is an excellent book by a very good person! I recommend it highly for its innovative thought, accuracy—and perhaps most of all for the reader—usability! This is a not only a new approach to what the author calls developmental conflict resolution, you can take this book to immediate clinical and counseling practice."
    Allen E. Ivey, EdD, ABPP, Board Certified in Counseling Psychology and Distinguished University Professor Emeritus at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst

    “I have used Barry Weinhold’s book, in my Conflict Resolution course at Metropolitan State University of Denver for years, starting with the first edition of the book. The response from students is consistently positive and many are surprised at the role early developmental traumas have played in their current adult experience of conflict. The book is informative, understandable, and compassionate in its approach to a deeper understanding of the pathways into, and out of, recycling intractable conflicts in our lives.”
    Brian Bagwell, Psy.D., LAC, MAC, Professor in the Department of Human Services and Counseling, Metropolitan State University of Denver
