Buddah’s Brain: Neuroscience’s Lessons for Better Conflict Resolution

The book Buddha’s Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love & Wisdom was published in 2009 by Dr. Rick and Hanson and Dr. Richard Mendius with the intention of blending the latest findings in neuropsychology with a general framework for healthy living. The piece was designed to be a comprehensible, accessible book aimed at helping a large audience understand both how the brain works, and how individuals can “manage” our brains to live effective, happy lives. This original purpose for Buddha’s Brain is all well-and-good, but further examination from the perspective of a dispute resolution professional reveals that the book provides many practical insights consumers and practitioners of ADR can use to help move their conflicts forward. Written with direct, succinct prose, Buddha’s Brain gives us a peak into how our brains handle conflict, and thus into different ways ADR professionals might consider managing the dispute resolution process.
