Good article
I think you never can over-emphasize the importance of emotional involvement in conflict resolution. The best techniques will fail if the facilitator doesn't get involved emotionally, the worst techniques will have some degree of success if empathy is achieved. We need more perspsectives like this one, from the article. Thanks, Ramiro

Dale, Thanks for bringing this to the mediation community! Engaging the whole person as they experience dispute and conflict is essential to the benefits and success of any mediation effort. I would like to include your article in our clinical training of new mediators, to help them develop their sensitivity to this dimension.
