I saw little in this article to address the situations where it is inappropriate to use an Avoiding Style. What happens when the avoiding style is abused to indefinitely avoid addressing the situation?
I have been mediating for 10 years in England and I have really enjoyed this series of articles on conflict styles. Altho' I am confident with my knowledge and experience of the mediation process, one of the continuing challenges of mediation is understanding and working with these individual differnces. I appreciate the articles' clarity and conciseness.
