"Bill is the High-Conflict expert - there is no question that he cannot answer!"
Research indicates that people with personality disorders are increasing in society at large, as well as in legal disputes in particular.
This masterclass will focus on managing personalities in conflict resolution, particularly resolving disputes involving "high-conflict" personalities. It will help practicing professionals recognise personality styles, choose appropriate intervention techniques, and maintain ethical principles while dealing with difficult people professionally and personally.
