Beyond the Bridge: Transforming Conflict Research, Education, and Practice by Transcending Barriers—Honoring the Contributions of Tricia S. Jones


In this tribute to the 2004 recipient of the International Association for Conflict Management's Jeffrey Z. Rubin Theory‐to‐Practice Award, we honor the work of Tricia S. Jones. Having worked with Trish as grad students, research and practice collaborators, and journal editors, we highlight her unique contributions to conflict resolution education, the role of emotion in conflict, and conflict coaching. We also celebrate her ability to transcend both disciplinary and academic–practitioner barriers as she elevates the importance of communication research.

Keywords: peer mediation, emotion, conflict coaching, conflict resolution education
