The Psychology of Negotiation and Mediation
Elizabeth Bader's article, "The Psychology of Mediation: Issues of Self and Identity and the IDR Cycle," has been accepted for publication by the Pepperdine Dispute Resolution Law Journal.
From Elizabeth: The article identifies and analyzes what I call the IDR cycle --- the cycle of narcissistic inflation, deflation and realistic resolution that typically occurs for parties in mediation. Issues of "face," ego" and self-identity are also dicussed more broadly, drawing from the perspectives of spirituality, psychoanalysis, neuroscience, and social psychology.

On November 18, 2009 at 10:00 am Pacific there will also be an ABA teleconference panel on the IDR cycle, entitled: The Psychology of Negotiation and Mediation.
