Workshop: SF work with conflicts – the know and how of Sf mediation in different countries

Peter Röhrig, Leo Blokland, Sieds Rienks, Martina Scheinecker

Have you ever thought of conflicts as something constructive? Not as an idea up in time, but as a real option?

SF offers an efficient approach for creating other perceptions of conflicts. Instead of avoiding or ignoring conflicts or confronting them with the ambition to win, it is an option to develop a constructive conflict culture.

We are a group of experienced sf mediators who want to share our ideas with other sf practitioners.
We would like to talk about the benefits of sf mediation, e.g.: We help not only to save energy but also to use this energy as a powerful source of change.

And we want to compare sf and conventional mediation and the possibilities to link them in a useful way, e.g.: Finding the fine line between problem talk and solution talk in mediations, working with a solution focused attitude and combining solution focused questions and conventional methods of mediation within one solution focused architecture of mediation, using helpful “problem oriented” methods of exploring views, emotions and needs within a solution focused frame
