Social Conflict and Negotiative Problem Solving: Expert Review.
Stow, Debra K.; Milczarek, Gary J.
A formative review of the Interim Version of the "Social Conflict and Negotiative Problem Solving" system, conducted November 19-21, 1975 in Portland, Oregon is presented. The purposes of the review were to obtain expert opinion on the quality of the system's theoretical base and training materials, and to secure recommendations regarding additional development efforts. Included in this report are an initial summary of results, a description of methodology, and a section on results that presents the issues raised by staff and reviewers, as well as summaries of discussions and recommendations. The system is intended to be a relatively structured, experience-based workshop designed to provide a variety of opportunities to explore situations of social conflict. Participants generally are teachers and/or administrators who meet as strangers or as members of the same organization for a total of six days. The reviewers expressed very positive feelings about the system in general and the review process. They indicated interest in participating in future workshops and being informed of on-going development efforts. The developers felt that the review was very helpful in terms of planning future directions, analyzing some difficult issues, and exploring possible modifications in the system. (RC)
