This book provides a comprehensive descriptive and prescriptive treatment of legal counseling, interviewing, and negotiation (including mediation and plea-bargaining). As reflected in the title, the book takes "a practical approach" to these skills, so students can learn specifically how to engage in effective counseling and negotiating. The book also emphasizes pertinent ethical and legal considerations in connection with counseling clients and negotiating settlements. The authors discuss leading "theoretical approaches" to the extent those approaches can be meaningfully applied in practice. The overall effect is to emphasize that blend of theory, practice, ethics, and law that is most meaningful in the sense of having real-life application to effective client representation. The Appendices to the book provide numerous negotiation and mediation, including plea-bargaining, role-plays. This eBook features links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.

A Psychological Insight Into Conflict Resolution

This book is about conflict resolution through mediation, from a psychological perspective. Although written in part from the point of view of litigation, the objective is to demonstrate how an appreciation of the psychological aspects of conflict and an understanding of the emotional strategies people adopt in dispute situations can assist both lawyers and non-lawyers in resolving conflicts. The book consists of three sections- a theoretical analysis of conflict and conflict resolution; a practical, legal and experiential explanation of mediation; and thirdly a series of mock mediations, comprehensively analysed from the viewpoint of the mediator and the parties, providing tips and guidance on the dilemmas and pitfalls that mediators encounter. The book is based on three fundamental tenets: that conflict is ever present, and cannot be eliminated but can be worked with; that the attitude and stance of the mediator towards the dispute can be of significance to the outcome; and above all that the use of psychotherapeutic tools can facilitate a paradigm shift in the parties' approach to conflict. The authors demonstrate how the mediator can move parties in dispute from a position of intransigent adversity to a working alliance, and thereby achieve a 'good enough ' resolution.

Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Conflicts associated with marital separation and divorce have, traditionally, been settled by lawyers through negotiations. Since 1980 in the United States, an increasing proportion of these conflicts have been settled or resolved through the process of marital-conflict mediation. Critics of mediation contend that the process fails to protect women from violent partners and that agreements neutralize the impact of gender-based power imbalances. Mediators argue that it is lawyers who are responsible for escalating conflict and that the legal process is costly and causes stressful delays in the separation process. The authors of this volume find that these arguments are ideologically driven and rarely supported by empirical

Assembled from Dispute Resolution Journal - the flagship publication of the American Arbitration Association - the chapters in the Handbook have all, where necessary, been revised and updated prior to publication. The book is succinct, comprehensive and a practical introduction to the use of arbitration and ADR, written by leading practitioners and scholars. The Handbook begins with chapters on specific strategies and tools to help manage risks and avoid disputes in the construction field. It discusses ADR as it relates to subcontracting and labor disputes, the use of a neutral architect, the importance of site visits, and the significance of understanding ADR procedures before agreeing to them. The option of using mediation to resolve disputes is explored, including guidelines and tools for successful mediation, the expert’s role in construction mediation, and what works and what doesn’t work in construction disputes. The use of arbitration is also looked at in depth and guidance is provided for both the arbitrator and for the advocate. There is an entire section devoted to partnering (the creation of a working relationship between a building owner and a contractor which further involves subcontractors, design professionals, and other agencies), discussing its benefits and providing useful tips. Lastly, advice is provided for both small and complex construction claims, and the use of Dispute Review Boards (comprising panels of three technically qualified neutral individuals). The chapters were selected from an extensive body of writings and, in the main, represent world-class assessments of arbitration and ADR practice. All the major facets of the field are addressed and provide the reader with comprehensive and accurate information, lucid evaluations, and an indication of future developments. They not only acquaint, but also ground the reader in the field.

Verhandeln? Bitte mit Gefühl! Noch immer herrscht der weitverbreitete Irrglaube, Verhandlungen müssten möglichst rational geführt, Emotionen weitestgehend ausgeklammert werden. Roger Fisher (Mitautor des Bestsellers "Das Harvard-Konzept") und Daniel Shapiro (Autor von "Verhandeln. Die neue Erfolgsmethode aus Harvard") zeigen, dass diese Herangehensweise nicht nur impraktikabel, sondern auch wenig Erfolg versprechend ist. Denn der Mensch ist ein emotionales Wesen und egal ob Freude, Wut oder Angst: Gefühle sind fester Bestandteil unseres Denkens und Handelns, die auch in sachlichen Verhandlungen nicht abgeschaltet werden können. Fisher und Shapiro zeigen, dass sich Emotionen sogar positiv auf das Verhandlungsergebnis auswirken: Wer die Bedeutung und Anzeichen der wichtigsten emotionalen Grundbedürfnisse erkennt, kann sie gezielt aktivieren und ansprechen und dadurch den Verhandlungsverlauf positiv beeinflussen.
