Top Customer Reviews
Comparable to an introductory course in conflict resolution, this book presents an overview of the nature of conflict, discusses a model of the five ways to resolve conflict, provides enlightened communication skills and strategies, explains the importance of safety and how to establish it during the conflict resolution process, teaches techniques for engendering collaborative problem solving, and offers an understanding of the types of power and the dynamics of persuasion. In subsequent chapters, the reader learns about specific types of conflict, such as conflict involving teens or especially stubborn people. This part of the book features numerous dialogues and many good questions that bring the complexities of conflict resolution to light while offering enough basic guidance to shepherd the reader in positive directions.
Don't Carve the Turkey with a Chainsaw is relatable, informative, and interesting to anyone who wants healthier family relationships. After reading it, you might want to recommend this book to other members of your family - but be sure to keep a copy for yourself so that you can review portions of it from time to time as new family dynamics arise.Read more ›
