Narrative Mediation Highly Recommended

Narrative mediation is an innovative conflict resolution paradigm that is a revolutionary departure from the traditional problem-solving, interest-based model of resolving disputes. Based on a postmodern, social constructionist philosophy, narrative mediation views conflict as arising within cultural contexts that have a direct bearing on how parties construct their perceptions of a particular event. A narrative mediation approach encourages the conflicting parties to reach understanding and resolution through a deep understanding of the shared personal and cultural narratives underlying the conflict.

National Issues Forums Great for Beginners Highly Recommended

The term "National Issues Forums" is used to refer to both a network of programs and a deliberative process. National Issues Forums (NIF) is an independent network of civic and educational groups which use "issue books" as a basis for deliberative choice work in forums based on the town meeting tradition. NIF issue books use research on the public's concerns to identify three or four options or approaches to an issue. Presenting issues in this way invites citizens to confront the conflicts among different options and avoids the usual debates in which people lash out with simplistic arguments.

National Issues Forums Institute Highly Recommended

NIFI is a nationwide network of educational and community organizations that deliberate about nationwide issues. NIFI publishes deliberation guides on such topics as Racial and Ethnic Tensions: What Should We Do?; Money and Politics: Who Owns Democracy?; and Violent Kids: Can We Change The Trend?
