Let Them Vent!

In this blog entry I discuss how I heard a retired judge / mediator say that he likes to let the parties in a probate dispute vent.  I describe why, for me, though I certainly support parties in expressing anger if they like, I don't look at that as "letting" them "vent".

Acceptance

Some of the news items in recent weeks made me think of something I had read about acceptance (“Getting Together – Building Relationships As We Negotiate” by Fisher and Brown, 1988).
