35 Exercises for Teaching Conflict Management - CNCR Swap Meet Sourcebook

image  The Consortium for Negotiation and Conflict Resolution based at Georgia State University has recently released a very nice compilation of exercises for teaching conflict management concepts. The exercises were gathered at a series of events (swap meets) hosted by CNCR that invited conflict resolution teachers and trainers to share an exercise or two that they liked and used frequently. The full collection is now available as a pdf entitled The CNCR Swap Meet Sourcebook: 35 Exercises for Teaching Conflict Management (Lin Inlow, Editor). Some videos of these tools being demonstrated are also online in quicktime or real player format.

Here’s the table of presenters and their exercise titles to whet your appetite. Lots of good ideas here, including one provided by this blog’s author, Bill Warters.  Thanks CNCR!
