Staying with Conflict: The Challenge of Engagement in the Face of Enduring Disputes – video and materials

This presentation and these materials were offered at CADRE’s Fifth National Symposium on Dispute Resolution in Special Education during October 2011. Be sure to review CADRE’s Video Resource Center from the Symposium. Support for the Symposium and video development was generously provided by the JAMS Foundation and the Office of Special Education Programs at the U.S. Department of Education.

In his keynote address, Professor Mayer explores some of the characteristics and dilemmas of enduring conflict and ways that conflict resolvers can shift the narrative from one of prevention, management, and resolution to one of anticipation, support and engagement.

A range of topics is covered including different aspects of conflict, intervention models, avoidance, power, the nature of agreements and how our purpose might be redefined towards one of conflict engagement.
