Webinar recording | Elements of outrage: A diagnostic tool for understanding people’s interests more richly

with Phillip Hart

Pre-recorded | Online

This webinar explores 12 elements that contribute to people's outrage and road-test them by applying them to mediation experience(s) to manage controversies.

People locked in conflict often need our help to recognise and discuss their interests in the situation. How confident are we that we have addressed all the important elements? What might we be missing? How can we support a stronger and more nuanced understanding of people’s interests?

Sandman distinguishes the negative consequences of a situation (Hazard) from the strong negative reactions - anger, concern, etc - that the person experiences (Outrage). Using an evidence-based approach - drawing on his extensive experience managing controversies - he identifies 12 elements that tend to contribute to people’s outrage and which he says dominate most conflicts.

These elements provide us with a handy checklist or diagnostic tool.

This webinar explores these 12 elements and road-test them by applying them to some mediation experience(s) of our own.
