This informative and interactive session will focus on advanced skills for dealing with difficult behaviors of high-conflict people dealing with separation and divorce. Behaviors of high-conflict people are often characterized by a preoccupation with blaming others; difficulty accepting responsibility of their own behavior; uncontrollable negative emotions; personal attacks, even against those trying to help; working hard against their own self-interests; and triggering conflicts among professionals. Professionals will benefit from this day by increasing their understanding of high-conflict people and learning new techniques for managing high conflict disputes, including advanced professional skills that are not obvious and natural. We will focus on methods for managing potentially high-conflict individuals and helping them learn skills they use in collaborative decision-making.  There will be practice exercises for managing high-conflict people in person (using statements that give empathy, attention and respect), in writing (responses that are brief, informative, friendly and firm), and in making decisions. It takes practice to fully absorb the many paradigm shifts of these high-conflict methods.
