Meaning-making is a process that attracts discussion, reflective thought, argument and academic research across many fields. These include learning and development, psychology, literature and art appreciation to name a few. However a literature search reveals that meaning-making appears to be missing in a recognisable way from the Dispute Resolution dialogue. This interactive presentation will engage the audience in an investigation of the different faces of meaning-making and the contribution it offers to practitioners and parties engaged in Dispute Resolution processes

Dispute Resolution is a dynamic field. Its diversity and flexibility make it a work in progress – continuing to challenge its practitioners to explore and engage in new ways of bringing value to the process and the parties. This session is part of that ongoing challenge – encouraging us to test our ideas and grow our insight into what works and what we might add to our repertoire.
