Following 35 years at the Bar, Paul turned to mediation, and mediated in a wide variety of disputes, lecturing on the psychology of conflict in Europe, Asia, South Africa and America. He was Course Leader on the Mediation Course at Regent's School of Psychotherapy and Psychology (RSPP), Regent's University London. His previous book with Dr Freddie Strasser, Mediation - A Psychological Insight into Conflict Resolution, was received with wide acclaim. Paul Randolph died in January 2019.
A very readable description of the art of mediation by an
acknowledged master in the field. * Sir Henry Brooke *
This book is a breath of fresh air. It is a simple and convincing account of those basic human frailties - the need for self-esteem, the need for control - that can cause and exacerbate conflict; and it is a useful manual for all those mediators called on to unravel the knot, not by mere logic, but by an understanding of how people really work. * Boris Johnson *
Each chapter of this book reveals some pearl of wisdom synthesized from the author's wide experience of law and psychotherapy, wisdom which will help you understand how the dispute developed but also, and more importantly,how best to resolve it. * Sir Alan Ward, Chair of the Civil Mediation Council *
