Publisher's Description

"This much needed book . . .is a creative, helpful, and hopefulcontribution at a time when we are especially challenged to bridgecultures in the pursuit of mutual understanding and peace."
Jimmy Carter, Nobel Peace Laureate

In our global society, challenging conflicts abound in personal,business, government, and international settings. Many of theseconflicts are complicated by layers of miscommunication, culturalmisunderstandings, and completely different ways of looking at theworld. These conflicts cannot be solved by goodwill or sincereintentions alone. In our multicultural world, we need new tools toaddress gaps in communication and understanding and the conflictsthat flow from them.

Bridging Cultural Conflicts answers this need ingroundbreaking ways that cut through complexity, replacingconfusion with clarity. It introduces mindful awareness, culturalfluency, and conflict fluency as tools for decoding and movingthrough intercultural conflicts, and for deepening and integratingchange. The book shows how fluency with culture and conflict can belearned through attention and practice, just as we wouldinternalize a new language. As fluency is acquired, a processcalled dynamic engagement is presented to help preventintercultural conflict, limit its escalation, and transform it intoa learning experience.

Michelle LeBaron's approach in Bridging CulturalConflicts is human, practical, and adaptable to a wide range ofinterpersonal, community, organizational, and political conflicts.Drawing from her work as an attorney, mediator, scholar, andinternationally acclaimed consultant, Michelle combines thedynamism of Western approaches to conflict resolution with theinsight and balance of Eastern approaches. In the process, sheoffers a wide array of creative strategies and usable tools. As weurgently seek better ways to work and live together and to addressthe issues that divide us, this timely book inspires flexibility,creativity, and hope.
