The authors would like to acknowledge Dr. Pat Evenson-Brady for her continuous support of this project, and Jim Melamed, J.D., whose gentle suggestions were pivotal in shaping this manual's final form.
This manual describes a methodology for resolving conflict in a collaborative manner, but does not refer to Dr. Ross Greene's Collaborative Problem Solving approach, as first described in his book The Explosive Child. For more information on Dr. Greene's Collaborative Problem Solving approach, visit the website of his non-profit organization, Lives in the Balance.
