Paths to Resolution
By Steve Robinson & Mark W. Leuthauser
Paths to Resolution: Professional Edition is a software training package designed for businesses. Many of the components were originally adapted from our excellent Student Edition in order to make them suitable for an adult, workplace audience.
Taken together, the various components allow a facilitator to teach basic to intermediate concepts in Conflict Resolution, including usable real-world skills. The package is designed to easily and flexibly fit into an existing workplace, and can also be used as a standalone instructional tool.
The package consists of four primary components:
- Paths to Resolution, a video training. Peacemaker staff appear as presenters and aid participants in learning the basics of Conflict Resolution through lecture, interactivities, and a participant workbook. The video training is divided into seven forty-five minute blocks to make deployment easy in a professional setting.
- Playing Peacemaker, an electronic book and database of interactivities designed to teach anyone how to be a better facilitator. The database contains tips, tricks, theory and nearly 200 different games and puzzles suited perfectly to groupwork.
- Role-Play Reference, an electronic book and database of role-plays. Everyone agrees on the importance of role-play in training, but it's seldom used well. This reference guide gives tips and a framework for the use of the role-play tool. In addition, it contains a score of role-plays ready-made to teach conflict resolution concepts, many of which have word-for-word scrpts to make it easier than ever to integrate role-plays into your practice.

The entire Paths to Resolution package is designed to be used by a facilitator to help communicate important concepts such as where conflict comes from, escalating behaviors, and productive problem solving. Using only a PC and a projector, anyone has a fun, engaging, and immediately useful curriculum designed to teach both theory and skills. Non-profit organizations may purchase the package at a discounted rate ($249). Your discount, if any, will be reflected in your shopping cart.
