Kenneth Cloke’s Locations Of Conflict and Techniques, Part Two


This continues the excerpt from Kenneth Cloke’s new book, The Crossroads of Conflict: A Journey Into the Heart Of Dispute Resolution, on locations of conflict, with suggested mediation techniques for each:

3. In our emotions, where anger, fear, jealousy, guilt, shame, and grief emanate and strive for release (emotional techniques using a subtle, sensitive, facilitative, empathetic approach, such as searching for emotional triggers).

4. In our spirits, where intentions, energy, life force, or chi become attached, intolerant, or unforgiving (spiritual techniques assisting people to move beyond resolution to forgiveness and increased mindfulness or awareness, such as asking questions that encourage responsibility for intentions, attitudes and choices).

See Monday’s post for the final two locations. Ken’s book can be purchased directly from his publisher, Janis Publications, here: I’m interviewing him in the next issue of Engaging Conflicts Today — sign up in the sidebar to the right!
