How do conflict resolution professionals describe empathy? What are the connections between empathy and healing conflict? How do coaches and mediators build empathy for their clients and themselves? How do forgiveness and empathy connect? These eloquent, distinguished experts in the field have a free ranging discussion of these and other related questions.


Topic and Questions

The general topic is the intersection of conflict resolution and empathy. I’m thinking of questions like–
 –  What does empathy mean to you?
– How does empathy fit with the work you do?
– How do you help clients/parties find empathy for each other?
– How/why does this help heal conflict?
– What makes finding empathy challenging?
– How are empathy and forgiveness different/the same?
