AUTHOR'S NIGHT

Kenneth Cloke

 
Host Karyn Foley, at the Calabasas Library, with mediator, arbitrator, attorney, coach, consultant, trainer and author, Kenneth Cloke author of "The Dance of Opposites: Explorations in Mediation, Dialogue and Conflict Resolution Systems Design".

In his latest book "The Dance of Opposites: Explorations in Mediation, Dialogue and Conflict Resolution Systems Design" Kenneth Cloke explores a new vision for conflict resolution, a “conflict revolution” that analyzes the use of language in conflict, the narrative structure of conflict stories, and how the brain responds to conflict. It surveys religion, spirituality, and meditation, and searches for ways of opening heartfelt communications between opponents.

"The Dance of Opposites
" also looks at social, political, and environmental conflicts, and offers suggestions on how to organize and conduct dialogues over difficult, dangerous, and controversial issues. It identifies new ways of designing conflict resolution systems for marriages, families and couples, and chronic organizational conflicts. It investigates dialectical philosophy, movements for social change, and theories of justice, encouraging us to use conflict to learn, become better human beings, and create opportunities for improvement.
