Mediator, lawyer, writer, and all-around Renaissance woman Stephanie West Allen needs your help
as she prepares to write an article on neuroscience transparency. What is neuroscience transparency? It’s what conflict resolution professionals tell their clients about neuroscience. You can contribute by taking her survey at her site, Brains on Purpose
, a blog which explores the role that brain science can play in the resolution of disputes.
Stephanie raises an interesting question that ADR practitioners no doubt will ask themselves more and more. Increasingly I myself look for ways to apply discoveries from neuroscience, cognitive psychology, and behavioral economics to my own work, whether assisting clients to resolve their disputes or teaching people how to negotiate or mediate.
