Pain and suffering often lie beneath conflict. What of this “beneath” is the business of conflict resolution professionals? How do we grow our capacity to bear witness without judging or fixing and to stay with our clients wherever they are? And how can we stay in the shadow of pain without carrying its weight on our own shoulders?
