Webinar recording | The neurobiology of conflict with Rachel King
31 December 2019
The Neurobiology of Conflict
Human conflict arises when one or more of our most basic physical or psychological needs are unheard, unmet, violated or perceived to be violated in some way. Conflict triggers the stress response and the release of stress hormones that actually disable the very higher-order brain functions we need to utilise to resolve conflict effectively.
During this webinar, Rachel will explore the factors that drive conflict, how conflict changes our physiology and neurobiology, why we respond this way and how we can learn to keep ourselves and importantly our clients, connected to their ‘smart brain’, keeping capabilities such as perspective-taking, empathy, judgement and reasoning skills, online.
This webinar is relevant to mediators and all those involved in conflict or dispute resolution.
