Conflict/Martin Rosenfeld, JD

Posted on June 18, 2017


Carl Jung, a psychologist and author of note, once said this about conflict: “The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed.” This comment is similar to a statement found in the Talmud, 2000 years previously, to the same effect: “There is no joy akin to the joy of resolving uncertainties.” Mankind is hardwired to want to seek resolutions to difficulties and controversies. In effect, it is not the person who seeks mediation who is out-of-the-ordinary, but rather the one who seeks to find resolution through litigation. Mediate don’t litigate.
