Money and sex are the two most powerful forces affecting people and when they mix, the results are complex and very nuanced. And that is true even when two people are getting on well. Throw in children, an income earning disparity and a relationship breakdown and the potential for all hell to break loose is very high.
Even though the emotions raised are very powerful they are often hidden, and so they can cause mediations to be derailed. This is because the gap between a client’s (rational) stated objectives and their real underlying (irrational) emotions is very large. And it is this gap that needs to be recognised and dealt with by mediators as a first step.
Drawing on ground breaking research in such fields as neuroscience, psychology and behavioural decision-making, Bernie will explain what role the three brains have to play in decision making and how sex and money can potentially sabotage even the most straightforward of outcomes.
