Are you in a conflict with a family member that is causing you pain?

Are you spending too much time dealing with conflict at work?

Are you at a crossroads in your life and unsure of which direction to take?

If you answered yes to any of these questions,

Nonflict: The Art of Everyday Peacemaking is for you. 

“Thank you for the impact Nonflict had on me. It helped me immediately with a vital meeting with my employees and their union. Later my wife and teenage daughter had an explosive argument and I used the Nonflict way to a peaceful resolution. We even embraced with hugs at the end!”
—Jason Rosset, CEO, Accuworx

“I founded a program to teach Masters level social work to students from the Middle East. Nonflict helped them resolve the most difficult conflicts we could imagine and to take these much needed valuable tools home to share with others.”
—Dr. Jim Torczyner, Professor of Social Work, McGill University

Authors Dr. Amir Kfir and Stephen Hecht offer you practical information and easy-to-follow exercises for dealing with conflict, regardless of the cause. You will see how they have mastered the Nonflict way in their own lives, and you will relate to many of these and other revealing examples. Let the Nonflict way guide you to strengthen and build on your relationships at home, at work, or in the community. Soon, you will also realize that conflicts are merely opportunities in disguise.


This is a practical, easy to read book on a topic we all face; conflict resolution. We learn about the styles we use as well as the ‘why’. Then we learn how to effectively face internal and external conflicts and turn them into opportunities for growth and more effective relationships at home, work or in our communities. The book provides a step-by-step guide to deal with conflict that has proven its effectiveness from the CEO suite to Main Street and across a multitude of cultures from North America to the Mid East.

We learn more effectively by stories and the authors share many of their own life conflicts as well as some from people who have used the Nonflict way to resolve conflicts at home, at work and in their communities.
