ERIC GALTON & LELA P. LOVE RELEASE STORIES MEDIATORS TELL
Eric Galton & Lela P. Love release Stories Mediators Tell, a collection of inspirational stories by experts in the mediation field.
"Their stories share advice on how to handle certain situations. The stories were not collected to glorify or to vilify mediation, but to make it accessible to readers generally to share what mediation is about and how certain situations were handled. The authors are motivated by the belief that mediation is not well understood--even its practitioners are often limited to their own experience, particularly given confidentiality strictures."
Stories Mediators Tell features contributions from IAM members Tracy Allen, Eleanor Barr, Lee Jay Berman, Eric R. Galton, Susan M. Hammer, Karin S. Hobbs, David A. Hoffman, Jeff Jury, Jeff Kichaven, Jeffrey Krivis and Jan Frankel Schau.
