Abstract

Effective negotiation skills are useful to grieving individuals and families and tend to ease suffering by creating effective communication among family members. This Capstone Project investigates the connection between individual's grieving process and their communication skills specific to negotiation techniques. Primary research was collected and analyzed. Subjects who participated in a study were asked questions specifically examining how negotiation techniques apply to families who have experienced grief through the death of a loved one. The findings of the study are consistent with the current literature about the use of negotiation techniques, and solutions for individuals who undergo the grieving process and face potential familial conflicts.
