Impact of Grief in Conflict Resolution

Grief easily affects people mentally, emotionally and physically. Grief may also cause depressions and emptiness.  Therefore, it may affect the way in which people make decisions and it is advisable not to make major decisions while in this state of mind. When one goes into a mediation session while in this condition, they need help to make the right decision. The Mediator has a big role to play in ensuring that the person grieving does not make a decision that would be regretted later.
