Civic Fusion: Mediating Polarized Public Disputes by Susan Podziba, a public policy mediator and principal of Susan Podziba & Associates," offers proven strategies for moving polarized parties to consensus solutions based on the author's 25 years of mediation experience, including working with pro-life and pro-choice leaders to change the rhetoric of the abortion debate."
Civic Fusion occurs when people with passionately different interests and positions bond to address common public goals without sacrificing core values. The book includes stories of the abortion talks as well as regulatory negotiations that resulted in consensus worker safety standards for construction cranes and a charter consensus process that helped a failed city reclaim its democracy, drawing on these experiences to illustrate how to design and manage complex negotiation processes to assist disparate groups in reaching agreements on complicated public policy questions. (Published by the American Bar Association Book Publishing Co, Inc.) Susan Podziba, a public policy mediator and principal of Susan Podziba & Associates, says this about her book... I initially began the process of writing this book more than ten years ago in an effort to make sense of the paradoxical unity I perceived among pro-life and pro-choice leaders. My hope now is that it will contribute to mending the tear in our social and political fabric, particularly as we begin a debate over gun control after the horrific events at Sandy Hook Elementary School. To get a better sense of of Susan's concepts of civic fusion check out the video below which provides "highlights from the Abortion Talks that occurred among leaders of the Massachusetts Pro-Life and Pro-Choice leaders after fatal shootings at two women's health clinics, interspersed with excerpts from Susan Podziba's lecture on the subject of her new book, Civic Fusion".

SPIDR New England President, Susan L. Podziba, and MAMPP Executive Director, Melissa Broderick, sent a joint letter to the MBA opposing the creation of the lawyers-only referral service.
"This would be like doctors referring themselves out as acupuncturists," said Susan Podziba, President of the New England Chapter of the Society of Professionals in Dispute Resolution (NE SPIDR). "For the public-which needs an alternative to costly litigation-the MBA's proposed referral service could well result in the referral of disputes to lawyers with the most minimal mediation training, while at the same time excluding highly experienced professionals and programs with proven track records in dispute resolutions and mediation," she added. "The MBA's proposed training isn't enough to compensate for the adversarial orientation that lawyers are taught in law school and rely m in their practices. Mediators bring to the process of helping parties work together a "human quality not often found in litigation," Podziba said. Susan L. Podziba, a Principal and Mediator at Susan Podziba & Associates, specializes in public sector mediation and consensus building services. Ms. Podziba has worked with federal, state, municipal, and private agencies in the areas of environment, affordable housing, governance, health care, and Israeli-Arab relations. Ms. Podziba is a former Public Disputes Mediator at Endispute, Inc., a former associate of the Public Disputes Project of the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, and a former lecturer at the Graduate Program in Dispute Resolution at UMass/Boston. Susan is completing her first one-year term as Chapter President.
