This interview of Louise Phipps Senft by Dave Hilton of the Conflict Specialists Show addresses such issues as:
Transformative vs Evaluative, Facilitative and Narrative Mediation;
Dealing with Burnout;
Mediators Beyond Borders;
American Institute of Mediation; and
The Association for Conflict Resolution.
The goal of the Conflict Specialists Show is to help people, who may only know about this industry from watching Movies or TV Shows, learn more about what “Conflict Specialists” actually do and how we can help others. It’s also an opportunity for current practitioners to learn from a diverse group of experts as they share their unique perspectives and experiences in the field.
