Healing Conflict: Listen, Validate, and Then Explore Options
"Christian Conte, PhD, is a mental health specialist and leading
authority on anger management. With Sounds True, Christian has published
Walking Through Anger: A New Design for Confronting Conflict in an
Emotionally Charged World. In this episode of Insights at the Edge, Tami
Simon talks with Christian about his Yield Theory of emotional
management, focusing on the process of listen, validate, explore
options. Christian explains the events that led to his interest in anger
management, as well as the origins of Yield Theory. He emphasizes the
importance of meeting others where they are, giving them the opportunity
to drain anger's charge from their limbic system. Christian and Tami
discuss why it's necessary to cultivate humility and how Yield Theory
might be applied to our currently divisive culture. Finally, they speak
on the cartoon world that angry responses often create, as well as the
importance of watching what we add to our minds."
