Mediating Dangerously: The Frontiers of Conflict Resolution, Transformation and Forgiveness

with Ken Cloke

The words ‘mediating’ and ‘dangerously’ don’t often appear together. Mediation is usually thought of as an ameliorator of danger, a pacifier of hazardous feelings, a safe space. Dangerous mediation means approaching conflicts with deep honesty and empathy, eliminating demonization and victimization, dropping masks and poses, and exploring conflicts within ourselves. It means triggering controlled “chain reactions” that allow conflicts to explode safely. It means testing the limits by confronting what is not working in relationships, transforming systems, exploring forgiveness, and working toward the heart of the problem.
