AC4-Logo-(micro-100p-v3)“10 Mistakes Crisis & Hostage Negotiators Can Make (& How You Can Avoid Them)”

Facilitator: Jeff Thompson, Research Fellow, Columbia University Law School; PhD candidate, Griffith University Law School
A crisis and hostage negotiator is a law enforcement conflict resolution expert who applies their skills in situations that are tense, (potentially) volatile, and where lives can be at risk. Although their work is unique, many similarities exist with other conflict resolution professionals. This workshop provides, based on research, ten mistakes crisis/hostage negotiators have made in situations and offers ways to avoid them in a manner that is directly applicable to other conflict resolution professionals, practitioners, and volunteers. Participants will have an opportunity to reflect on these negotiator skills and share their comments throughout the session.
