Working with High Conflict People

Feb 5, 2011   //   by Erickson Mediation   //   Blog  //  No Comments

Bill Eddy spoke at a day-long seminar put on by Erickson Mediation Institute on February 4th entitled, “Working with High Conflict People.” Over 50 therapists, judges, attorneys and mediators listened to and engaged Mr. Eddy as he spoke about his experiences with high conflict people. Mr. Eddy explained the psychology and physiology behind many personality disorders commonly linked to those with a high conflict behavior pattern while giving insights and tips on how practitioners can best work with them. The conference was an enormous success! A few of Mr. Eddy’s practice tips included:

  • High Conflict People respond well to the professional providing structure
  • Some effective ways to manage a High Conflict Person are to exude Empathy, give them Attention and Respect (E.A.R.) Invite High Conflict People to make a proposal – this moves them quickly from the past to the future
  • Put the problem on the shoulders of the High Conflict Person (“You have a dilemma. What are YOU going to do about it?”)
