About FiPi

FiPi is a partnership between the worlds of conflict resolution and communications. It was set up by Fiona A. McAuslan and Peter Nicholson in 2011 and is based in Dublin, Ireland. Peter and Fiona have worked together since 2007 after they met during the publication of the S.A.L.T. Programme: Creative Solutions to Conflict for Primary Schools.

We have developing an Irish Creative Mediation Model that works world wide through performance based Conflict Resolution Training. So far we have pushed this work through retail publications in Ireland for both adults and children as well as into the main stream national second level (primary school) system.

Fipi’s publications incorporate methodology using characters which define a problem, impart how to deal with the issue and goes on to set out solutions, and answer questions. New media has been incorporated enable the reader, or student, to assimilate the solutions.

The S.A.L.T. Programme: a comprehensive programme for schools already used in many Irish and UK Schools.

The Resolving Books Series: We currently have four books, the newly released Resolving Bereavement, Resolving Bullying, Resolving Anger and Resolving Sibling Rivalry. The books are simple straightforward, but very clever tools. All of the books are widely used at home and in schools.
