It is thoroughly researched, well written, and involving for the students."" Dale L. Shannon, Western Michigan University ""The cases are wonderfully suited to the subject as a whole. They illustrate the theoretical concepts and are skillfully woven into the text explanation."" Gary Hartzell, University of Nebraska Omaha ""A substantial amount of space is devoted to each key concept, rather than trying to cover everything about conflict. This provides students with a more thorough grasp of each, rather than overwhelming them with terms to memorize."" Laura L. Jansma, University of California, Santa Barbara ""In addition, I like the text because it offers an interactionist approach to conflict, a cogent discussion of power, thorough treatments ofthe literature, and a good balance between theory and practice."" Steven Combs, Loyola Marymount University ""'I know of no other general text about conflict that is as judiciously constructed as is Working Through Conflict. The scope of the text is admirable, but the authors don't try to spread themselves too thinly..."" Kevin E. McClearey, Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville

Finding Your Way Through Conflict

The Power Of Discord


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

This "profoundly wise" look at how to foster connections, attachment, and resiliency explains why working through discord is the key to better relationships. (Sue Johnson, bestselling author of Hold Me Tight) You might think that perfect harmony is the defining characteristic of healthy relationships, but the truth is that human interactions are messy, complicated, and confusing. And according to renowned psychologist Ed Tronick and pediatrician Claudia Gold, that is not only okay, it is actually crucial to our social and emotional development. In The Power of Discord they show how working through the inevitable dissonance of human connection is the path to better relationships with romantic partners, family, friends, and colleagues. Dr. Tronick was one of the first researchers to show that babies are profoundly affected by their parents' emotions and behavior via "The Still-Face Experiment." His work, which brought about a foundational shift in our understanding of human development, shows that our highly evolved sense of self makes us separate, yet our survival depends on connection. And so we approximate, iteratively learning about one another's desires and intentions, and gaining confidence in the process as we correct the mistakes and misunderstandings that arise. Working through the volley of mismatch and repair in everyday life helps us form deep, lasting, trusting relationships, resilience in times of stress and trauma, and a solid sense of self in the world. Drawing on Dr. Tronick's research and Dr. Gold's clinical experience, The Power of Discord is a refreshing and original look at our ability to relate to others and to ourselves.
