First Edition winner of the 2007 Distinguished Book Award from the Communication &BAD:amp; Social Cognition Division of the National Communication AssociationThe means to express conflict is through communication (verbal and nonverbal messages); likewise, the means to manage and address conflict is through communication. The Second Edition of the award-winning The SAGE Handbook of Conflict Communication emphasizes constructive conflict management from a communication perspective which places primacy in the message as the focus of conflict research and practice. Editors John G. Oetzel and Stella Ting-Toomey, along with expert researchers in the discipline, have assembled in one resource the knowledge base of the field of conflict communication; identified the best theories, ideas, and practices of conflict communication; and provided the opportunity for scholars and practitioners to link theoretical frameworks and application tools.Key Features: Examines conflict in multiple contexts: Rather than focusing on a single context, the HandbookÆs four parts focus on contexts in which conflict occursùconflict in relationships and families, conflict at work, conflict in communities, and conflict in international/intercultural situationsùand includes an understanding of how each context impacts the others. Integrates research and practice: The art and science of conflict are blended together by integrating research and practice so that practitioners and scholars know both the theoretical explanations of conflict as well as the skills needed to address conflict. Offers a thorough review of literature: This book assembles the knowledge base of the field of conflict communication in one volume. A thorough review of literature provides access to a vast amount of research. Since culture shapes the way we view and communicate about conflict, a strong emphasis is placed on cultural diversity.
