This project is directed at elucidating the deep metaphors and themes associated with both interpersonal and intergroup conflict and the transformation of that conflict through negotiation and mediation. Using the ZMET (Zaltman Metaphor Elicitation Technique) (Zaltman, 1997; Christensen & Olson, 2002), we have developed an interactive website that allows students to explore cognitive maps and mental models of conflict and negotiation.
