About the Author.
"Bridging Troubled Waters illustrates and illuminates the value and importance of creativity in dealing with the complexity of conflict. It helps us explore how to employ our whole selves-our minds, hearts, and souls- in approaching conflict." --Chris Carlson, coexecutive director, the Policy Consensus Initiative, Santa Fe
"This is a must-read for the practitioner as well as the academic. A brilliant approach to conflict resolution that is certain to shift the thinking of those who are still operating from twentieth century approaches. This is a necessary addition to the library of all conflict resolution educators and practitioners." --David E. Reagan, psychology and communications instructor, Camosun College, Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
