A Product Unique to Canada
Several U.S. analyses and practical guides on this topic exist, but there has yet to be a Canadian-specific manual on resolving conflicts in the education system that has been written from a professional mediator's perspective. Managing Conflict in Schools: A Practical Guide fills that gap.
By dealing with the principles that underlie conflict, this guide provides an answer to educators who want to take charge of the conflict resolution process and make a difference in their schools.
A Must-Have Book For:
- Principal seeking to create a harmonious environment in your educational institution
- Vice-Principal who often has to deal with disciplinary issues where conflict tends to be commonplace
- Teacher charged with maintaining a productive instructional environment
- Non-teaching staff whose conflicts offer their own unique dynamics
