This is an important resource for attorneys and related professionals to help their clients in resolving - and avoiding - disputes that occur in the estate planning process. Written by a team of experienced attorneys and mediators, Mediation for Estate Planners provides the fundamental knowledge and basic tools employ mediation within an estate planning practice. It provides practice-proven guidance on recommending mediation to clients, either at the planning stage or soon after a dispute surfaces, so that families may be able to resolve disagreements before entrenched positions are established. The book considers all relevant issues involving the use of mediation in an estate planning practice, including drafting mediation clauses for estate planning documents; using mediation to resolve probate and trust disputes; addressing family business succession; guardianship and conservatorship issues; using mediation in hospital settings when families face difficult end of life decisions; working through disputes between trustees and beneficiaries; and more.

Managing Interpersonal Conflict is a systematic review of conflict research in legal, institutional and relational contexts. Each chapter represents a summary of the existing quantitative social science research using meta-analysis, with contexts ranging from jury selection to peer mediation to homophobia reduction. The contributors provide connections between cutting-edge scholarship about abstract theoretical arguments, the needs of instructional and training pedagogy, and practical applications of information. The meta-analysis approach produces a unique informational resource, offering answers to key research questions addressing conflict. This volume serves as an invaluable resource for studying conflict, mediation, negotiation and facilitation in coursework; implementing and planning training programs; designing interventions; creating workshops; and conducting studies of conflict.
