Webinar recording | Apology in dispute resolution
with Chris Marshall
Pre-recorded | Online
Participants loved this useful guide to types of apology, the power of apology and how it can best be utilised in dispute resolution. Chris offers so much practical good sense and useful templates to help frame what makes a powerful apology.
“Get him back…!”
“I thought this webinar was really informative, as did another one of my colleagues whom I registered for it.”
The offering and receiving of apologies has been called “one of the most profound human interactions”. Apologies have the power to heal humiliations and grudges, to remove the desire for vengeance and to restore broken relationships. Apologies therefore have an indispensable role to play in human relationships in general and in conflict resolution processes in particular. But the practice of apology is complicated by several factors and failed apologies can do more harm than good.
This webinar recording explores how parties to a dispute can be helped to understand the dynamics of the apology process and how to minimise the chance of apology failure.
This is a ‘must-see’ for restorative justice facilitators and is also very relevant for mediators and all those involved in conflict resolution.
