Mediation Theory and Practice provides a thorough introduction to the ever-expanding world of mediation. By blending theory with practical application, this book introduces the process of mediation while grounding the student in informative research and theory. Reviewer Praise for McCorkle and Reese's Mediation Theory and Practice I believe that the ideas and concepts as presented will help the students understand mediation and the role it plays in today's society. In addition, I think that the students will find the concepts personally rewarding as they interact with others on a daily basis. Cornelia Glenn, Owensboro Community College In addition to providing the beginning mediator with necessary guidance, it gives more in-depth techniques for enhanced skill development. Sheryl Youngblood, Marywood University Of the mediation textbooks I have seen, this one stands out as the best, with its blend of theory and practice skills. Chris Kennedy, Western Wyoming Community College This book appears to be innovative yet practical, research-based yet readable by a lay or inexperienced academic readership; it's not too dense to understand easily. Rebecca Dumlao, East Carolina University I still feel that the style of writing in this text will resonate well with students. I found it quite engaging, yet not overly simplified. It challenges students without appearing esoteric or dry Christina Yoshimura, University of MontanaMcCorkle, Suzanne is the author of 'Mediation Theory and Practice', published 2004 under ISBN 9780205361083 and ISBN 0205361080.
