From time to time I will feature a book aimed at developing the leadership of forensic healthcare professionals. For those of you who are trying to run programs but struggling to have your voices heard by senior hospital management, community leaders, policy makers or other disciplines– I have a book for you.
Negotiating at an Uneven Table: Developing Moral Courage in Resolving our Conflicts, by Phyllis Beck Kriteck (Jossey-Bass), “explores the process of resolving conflicts in situations where unacknowledged inequity influences disputes and their outcomes. Substantially revised and expanded, this new edition will help open minds and balance the negotiation process. Throughout the book, Kritek challenges traditional approaches to dealing with inequities at the negotiation table and offers alternatives for reframing the process.” This book was named Conflict Resolution Book of the Year by the Association of American Law Schools.
