Use Subject Headings to find books
Subject headings allow you to search library catalogs for materials on a particular topic. Often subject heading searching can be more productive than searching by simple keywords. Listed here are some subject headings relevant to CR. To search subject headings, use the advanced search function of the UHMC Library Catalog (Primo Search).
|Family mediation||Interpersonal conflict|
|Intervention (international law)||Mediation|
Pacific settlement of
|Social justice||Violence prevention|
Or you may want to approach the topic from the angle of the conflict that needs to be resolved:
|Boundary disputes||Conflict of generations|
|Culture conflict||Ethnic conflict|

Conflict Resolution is an interdisciplinary subject, which means you can find useful ideas, research articles, background information, and data in a variety of places.
Social Sciences & Humanities Databases
The research literature in Education can be useful as well. The key database to search is called ERIC. Note that you may want to avoid using the term conflict resolution in your ERIC searches as you may miss great articles that use different terminology.
