Emily de Schweinitz Taylor
Like you, I deal with conflict every day to greater or lesser degrees. Motivated by my studies and life experiences, I am dedicated to sharing practical, every day conflict resolution principles and communication skills with individuals, families, and organizations .
I am a certified mediator, a conflict coach, a writer, and a communications trainer. I currently work as the assistant director of BYU Law's Center for Peace and Conflict Resolution . Most importantly, I am the mother of five growing children (aged 10-16 years old) who daily teach me important lessons about effective conflict resolution.
Following my undergraduate studies in French and socio-cultural anthropology, I earned a master's in international policy from the University of Chicago. After my schooling, I worked at Cisco Systems as an international government relations manager and Rotary International as a public relations specialist.
In 2015, I graduated from a University of Denver’s master’s program in communications focused on conflict resolution. As a writer, I published my first full-length book entitled, Raising Mediators, in 2017 . I also continue to write blogs for both my Raising Mediators and Conflict Fluent web sites and regularly produce radio segments on conflict resolution topics with BYU Radio shows.
In 2021, I am planning to publish my second book entitled Conflict Fluent, which is focused on exploring and implementing the five approaches to conflict in our lives! Watch this video to learn about the five conflict approaches.
