Die Rolle des Mediators in Mediationsverfahren (German Edition)
Jochen Brandhoff , and Of Counsel , Dr. The question presented to the ECJ is whether the current German corporate co-determination legislation is incompatible with the principles of European Union law. According to the current law, the employees of German corporations working outside of Germany have no right to participate either actively or passively in the election of labor representatives to company supervisory boards.
Rather, with this lawsuit he is seeking to affect the Europeanization of this right to co-determination and thereby broaden its base of legitimacy. This policy goal cannot be achieved, however, when a company employs its workforce throughout the Member States of the EU but restricts the right of co-determination to a minority of its employees — that is, giving it exclusively to those employees working within German borders.
Companies will often make this restriction even when it employs the vast majority of its workforce abroad. Caspar Behme and our partners Dr. Jochen Brandhoff and Stephan A. With its ruling on The Court has set the date for oral arguments to January 24th, In this case, the ECJ must decide whether German corporate co-determination rules violate the European non-discrimination principle and the free-movement of workers by not including employees working outside of Germany in the class of persons entitled to participate in the election of supervisory boards in German corporations.

Frankfurt am Main, October 26, German employee participation on supervisory boards, as presently implemented, possibly violates European law and may no longer be applicable.

Rather the issue is, if German codetermination regulations violate European law and in turn no longer apply, at least until such time as the legislature passes a revision that complies with European law. The Courts of Instance rulings and legal literature are not on the same page in this matter. Currently, this would affect corporations. The expectation is, however, that the objections against the implementation of co-determination based on European law will also affect corporations whose supervisory board is comprised of one third employee representatives in accordance with the German One-Third Participation Act.
This would affect roughly 1, additional corporations. Affected corporations should pay close attention to future developments in this matter and be mindful of the possible legal implications this may have on the composition of supervisory boards.

Managers are confronted with numerous challenging situations in their work life. Managing diverse interactions professionally has become a ubiquitous requirement of current working conditions in transcultural management, whilst remaining Managing diverse interactions professionally has become a ubiquitous requirement of current working conditions in transcultural management, whilst remaining healthy at the same time. This study contributes to the theoretical debate on managerial sense of coherence, identity, organisational culture and transcultural conflict management in international work contexts.
It responds to the question how managers could be qualified to increase their ability to activate resources and develop sense of coherence in challenging transcultural work contexts. This model is based on a systemic and salutogenetic, transcultural and transformative fundament and includes counselling, a managerial training series and a team mentoring approach, as well as facilitator training. This is a vital text for scientists, researchers, students and practitioners working in transcultural organisational settings, focusing on topics of promoting transcultural mental health, salutogenesis, identity, values and intercultural competence as well as organisational culture and their interrelationships.

Artificial Walls. Stuttgart: Ibidem Verlag more. This book offers far-reaching insights into perceptions of conflict in South Africa. The author captures the essence of about one-hundred interviews reflecting disparate attitudes towards social changes in the post-apartheid Republic of South Africa.
Unexpected statements - for example, with respect to the continued existence of internalized apartheid - are carefully analyzed and hermeneutically understood. At the beginning of the research, presumptions might have raised expectations for the similarity between the narrative interviews. However, it becomes clear during the reading of this work that each interview was itself unique and each created a unique situation between the interviewer and the interviewee, inviting the reader to listen again and again to the spoken and analyzed words.
The thorough, months-long field stays, from until , emphasize the researcher's exhaustive effort better to understand the perspective of the interviewees. In addition to the book's research-related merits, its data can increase the cultural competence of those readers who are interested in information on specific predominant-cultural standards in present day South Africa.

Der Einsatz von Aufstellungsarbeit in der Mediation. Conflicts are a part of our society. Nevertheless, they cause tensions between individuals or groups. There are many ways of dealing with conflicts. Mediation is one way of solving disputes. Its structured process assists the conflict Its structured process assists the conflict parties to negotiate a conflict resolution.
Besides mediation, other kinds of conflict counseling tools are being developed. Although scientific research is very limited, constellation work has already shown its high potentials for family and business counseling. This study focuses on the combination of mediation and constellation work. The absence of crucial academic research on this topic motivates to have a closer look at the possibilities that arise from combing these methods. In particular, this study aims to explore the potentials of constellation work as a supplementary instrument to mediation in order to generate new ideas which may lead to innovative patterns.
This will be done by a qualitative approach. The first part of this book gives an overview of the theoretical basis of the empirical study. This includes the description of the main concepts, principles and methods of mediation and constellation work. In the second part of this book, the research methodology is presented, involving the research questions, the concrete collection of data, the sampling and the data analysis method.
The qualitative survey is carried out via guided expert interviews. The interviews with twelve mediators who are implementing constellation work in their professional mediation processes can give a first impression of how the integration works out. Therefore, the study not only examines connecting factors but also the potential limits and challenges faced by the combination of the two methods. Conference Presentations.

Developing value-orientations in family therapy trainees: A three-year investigation more. Family therapy has advanced as an important therapeutic approach in Europe and, in Germany, future family therapists enter a three-year-training programme every year.
Family therapist trainees FTTs have hardly been studied in terms of Family therapist trainees FTTs have hardly been studied in terms of their value-orientations VOs and how they see the world. This study aims at researching the value-orientation developments in FTTs during the three-year training period and based on the Schwartz value model. A longitudinal study was carried out over a three-year period. The sample consisted of 65 FTTs. VOs were investigated using open questions in self-developed questionnaires. The findings show that FTTs focus mainly on VOs in the Schwartz value domain of "benevolence", followed by "self-direction" and "universalism".
This shows that the well-being of others is in the centre of interest in FTTs. However, VOs which indicate a freedom to make decisions and be self-directed are also extremely important.
Zeitschrift für Konfliktmanagement
The least-mentioned value domains include "power" and "stimulation", showing that FTTs are neither focused on status, wealth or richness, nor on excitement or a varied life. With regard to the Schwartz value dimensions, the dimension of "self-transcendence" was the most frequently mentioned, followed by "conservation", "openness to change" and "self-enhancement".
Self-transcendence includes the value domains of benevolence and universalism and shows that the preservation and enhancement of welfare of other individuals are highly important, as well as VOs such as understanding, appreciation, tolerance and protection of human beings and the environment. Findings further show that FTTs develop their professional identity while consciously strengthening their VOs.
This study contradicts previous research which claims that FTs are, to a large extent, unconscious in respect of their VOs. The study shows that FTTs are aware of their VOs and this supports them in facilitating client-centred approaches and develop themselves as FT professionals.

This qualitative study is based on the research paradigm of Dilthey's modern hermeneutics. Women leaders are containers of anxieties, while they act out defense mechanisms, such as splitting, projection, projective identification, introjection, idealization, simplification and rationalization. Women leaders further have introjected the roles of their mothers and female family members from their childhood.
They do not embrace the full authority and agency of their leadership, and explore their own difficulties and negative emotions in others through projective identification. The findings create awareness of the roles of women leaders, strengthen women leadership and emphasise the need for leadership training taking the systems psychodynamic perspective into account. These demands create new unconscious dynamics within the context of diversity markers, such as race, age and gender in These demands create new unconscious dynamics within the context of diversity markers, such as race, age and gender in organisations.

Perspectives of Chinese and Tanzanian employees on intercultural cooperation in a private Chinese organisation in Tanzania more. The purpose of this paper is to understand perspectives and challenges of Chinese and Tanzanian employees working in a private Chinese organisation in Tanzania.
Methodology: The study uses a case study approach within a hermeneutical research paradigm. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews and observation in a selected private Chinese organisation. Findings: The findings show that working together interculturally is a challenge for both Chinese and Tanzanian employees in the selected private Chinese organisation. Overall, Chinese employees share a mostly positive view of their organisation, while Tanzanians tend to be more critical of the organisation.
Members of both groups, however, feel that intercultural collaboration and cooperation could improve if the other group members make recommended changes. Despite this, both groups adhere to their stereotypic experiences of the other and maintain expectations that the other should change. Limitations: The study is limited to a single organisation and the in-depth qualitative data explored.
Practical implications: Chinese organisations need to create opportunities for training in the basics of intercultural communication to improve the understanding of the self and the other within the organisation, to reflect on stereotypes and prejudices, and to improve the understanding of thought styles, experience, knowledge and basic cultural values and concepts. As such cultural knowledge-sharing opportunities would contribute to a sustainable intercultural communication practice in the organisation.

The development of sense of coherence in systemic family therapist trainees more.
Sense of coherence SOC is an important component within the concept of salutogenesis Antonovsky, It is a basic life-orientation which impacts on mental health and well-being. Often, research focuses on SOC in patients or clients Often, research focuses on SOC in patients or clients undergoing therapies. Although systemic family therapy is majorly acknowledged in Germany Welter-Enderlin, , research has hardly focused on the development of salutogenesis and sense of coherence in therapists or therapist trainees. This longitudinal study aims at exploring the SOC, as a positive psychology construct, among a cohort of systemic family therapist trainees in Germany and its development over a period of three years by focussing on SOC, focusing on the development of the SOC subscales of comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness and selected demographical variables.
General linear modelling techniques were also employed to explore the data for possible interactions. The sample consisted of 65 students in the first year, 55 and 43 respondents in the 2nd and third year respectively. The measurements were taken during the course years to This instrument has well-established reliability and validity with regard to the cultural context of research. In terms of the present study, internal consistency reliabilty ranged between. In total the Sense of Coherence SOC score and sub-scores, except comprehensibility , were significantly different in the three periods.
In short for protestant respondents the meaningfulness scores increased in each of the three measurement periods, in the case of married respondents meaningfulness was nearly the same as that of single or divorced respondents in the first period, but then steadily increased significantly more than in the single persons.
The latter again started with much lower scores for manageability than the married persons, but at the end of the three periods this score had caught up with that of the married ones. These results are discussed in the context of this training environment and recommendations for theory and practice are provided. Antonovsky, A.

Sense of coherence SOC and mindfulness MI have been defined as positive psychology constructs and are believed to promote the health and wellbeing of individuals and organisations.
SOC is a life orientation based on comprehensibility, SOC is a life orientation based on comprehensibility, manageability and meaningfulness, whilst MI refers to a consciousness discipline and a state of mind that focuses on the present moment. Both constructs contribute positively to mental health and wellbeing. The Catholic Church is challenged by complex changing world realities such as decreasing numbers in members, increasing multicultural work settings, a decrease in pastoral communities, and restructuring processes within the organisation.
Therefore, ecclesiastical professionals are trained to increase mental health and well-being through a strengthened sense of coherence and mindfulness to cope with these complex challenges. The aim of this longitudinal study was to explore the development of sense of coherence and mindfulness constructs in a group of senior professionals attending adult educational trainings in the German Catholic Church. This qualitative study was based on a longitudinal case study approach within the phenomenological and interpretative hermeneutical paradigms with specific reference to constructivism, temporality, development processes and change.
A sample of eight participants, the total of the adult educational training group, voluntarily enrolled for a day training programme spread over a period of nine months to develop SOC and MI. Individual sub-scores on the questionnaires were analysed as well as trends with individual candidates. The discussion explores trends as well as the pitfalls in the development of SOC and MI and highlights the implications for theory and practice.

In Cuba, conflict mediation has a tradition since the s, however, hardly any research has been conducted on conflict mediation theories and practices in Cuba. The aim of this study is to explore the concept of conflict mediation in Cuba from a culture-specific perspective of conflict mediators practicing mediation in Cuba to generate "thick descriptions" Geertz, of the phenomenon.
The study is based on a hermeneutical-constructivist, qualitative research paradigm. Data are collected through qualitative semi-structured expert interviews and observations, gathered during a field stay in Cuba. Findings show that conflict mediation plays a crucial role in resolving conflicts in Cuba since the s. Since then, conflict mediators in Cuba use Western tools and concepts of conflict mediation whilst adjusting them culture-specifically.
Usually, the phase structure of Western mediation concepts is used. However, in mediation processes in Cuba collectivist interests and responsibilities are considered as more important than individual problems and needs. Quality standards in mediation are valued as highly important to guarantee a enrichting and empowering conflict resolution process. Cultural aspects, such as images of self and other, friends and enemies, as well as collectivism and individualism are important issues in conflict mediation processes in Cuba.
In conclusion, conflict mediation in Cuba is viewed as a positive and constructive tool of intervention in conflict resolution processes.
