Party Directed Mediation: Helping Others Resolve Differences is an effort to present practical, sound, research-based ideas hopefully leading to the improved management of deep-seated interpersonal conflict. While many of the concepts were originally developed through research in agriculture and agri-business firms, the methods (Party-Directed Mediation and Negotiated Performance Appraisal) have since drawn the interest of a wide range of people from women's groups, churches, attorneys, and mediation centers throughout the world. The methods used require more time than traditional mediation, but are particularly well suited to volunteer mediators, intercultural and multi-ethnic conflicts when issues of saving face are important, and other conflicts in which emotional factors are high. This approach is especially geared to help parties who will continue to live or work together after the mediator goes home, and need to learn interpersonal negotiation skills for handling future differences.
