5.0 out of 5 stars Lawyers as Peacemakers a MUST read!, June 23, 2011
This review is from: Lawyers as Peacemakers: Practicing Holistic, Problem-Solving Law (Paperback)
Wright's Lawyers as Peacemakers is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, providing a wealth of ideas for everyone in ANY profession who yearns for a better, more compassionate world. Although this book targets the legal profession, everyone can understand it and apply the ideas to his or her own profession and personal life. Wright explains the essence of therapeutic jurisprudence, which is practicing law with the purpose of restoring and maintaining the well being of all the people involved, including the clients, the victims, the offenders, the lawyers, and the community. This book is NOT fluffy idealism. It provides very practical and doable solutions and techniques for problem solving and conflict resolution. It shows how we can all relate to each other in compassionate ways rather than adversarial. It explains the benefits of this approach, which in most situations enormously outweigh the benefits of the traditional win-lose adversarial approach. Wright does not preach. She shows exactly how a win-win outcome is accomplished. She has done her homework and reveals that this approach to doing business can actually be much more financially profitable than the traditional win-lose approach, in addition to improving the emotional and physical well being of all the people involved. It is one thing to say we should all care about each other, and another altogether to explain how to do it. Wright does the latter.
