Clinical Sociological Contributions to the Field of Mediation

  • Jan Marie Fritz

Many disciplines and organizations have contributed to the field of mediation. One of these influences, the discipline of sociology, has assisted with the theoretical analysis of conflicts and dispute intervention mechanisms such as mediation. Not only has clinical sociology, a subfield of sociology, contributed to the theoretical analysis of conflicts and conflict intervention techniques, but clinical sociologists also are involved in conducting mediations and putting appropriate dispute resolution (ADR) systems in place. This chapter defines mediation and then identifies and discusses some of the clinical sociological contributions to the field of mediation.
