I am so looking forward to exploring legal, ethical and risk management issues in interdisciplinary approaches to conflict management at my session at the Catalyst Conference. Many of us recognize that conflicts, whether in the family, business or workplace setting, have emotional, legal and financial aspects so that the disputants are often best served by a team of professionals with different kinds or expertise. At the same time, there are numerous (and often unrecognized) constraints on how these professionals can structure their collaborative arrangements and client engagements, whether they are acting as advocates, neutrals or experts. The availability and sufficiency of insurance coverage for any claims arising from these collaborative arrangements is also an issue.
If you have specific topics you would like to see addressed in my session, please let me know!
