Conflict is an increasingly common feature of modern life, and often has disastrous and destructive outcomes. Arts Approaches to Conflict explores how various arts approaches can both raise our understanding of conflict and lead to its constructive resolution. Practitioners and experts from a wide range of art forms examine their own fields as approaches to conflict, encompassing:

- visual arts

- drama, puppetry and masks

- music

- storytelling

- dance and movement

- the combined arts

Arts Approaches to Conflict is a rich resource of new ideas, practices and information which explores the creative ways to address conflict. It is fascinating and eye-opening reading both for students and practitioners in arts therapies, psychotherapy, counselling, social work, mediation, probation and prison services.
