Conflict Resolution and Peace Education: Transformations across Disciplines
Carter, Candice C., Ed.
Peace education includes lessons about conflict sources, transformation and resolution. While featuring field-based examples in multiple disciplines, including political science, anthropology, communication, psychology, sociology, counseling, law and teacher training, this book presents real cases of conflict work. Explained are concepts underlying conflict transformation and strategies that have been adapted for use in professional practice. The contributors describe formal peace education with university students in different fields of study and informal learning of adults in community settings. Comprehensively, this book supports professionals who specialize in conflict work as well as instructors and learners in several disciplines which all respond to conflict. This book contains the following: (1) Introduction (Candice C. Carter); (2) Multiculturalism and Conflict Transformation: Counselor and Client Working Together (Richmond Wynn, Sharon Wilburn, and Cirecie West-Olantunji); (3) Analytical Conflict Transformation and Teaching for Peace in Sociology (Casey Welch and Elisabeth Baker); (4) Nonprofits Advancing Public Dialogue About a "Culture of Peace" (John Frank); (5) Comprehensive Law: Transformative Responses by the Legal Profession (Susan Daicoff); (6) Peace Psychology in a Poor World: Conflict Transformation in Response to Poverty (Maria Teresa Tuason); (7) Conflict Transformation Efforts in the Southern Philippines (Susan D.
