Listen to their stories of their experiences, and demonstrate sympathy and empathy with them in regards to their stories and experiences. 2. Respond to them in ways which convince them that you have heard them and are trying to understand their circumstances, points of view and major concerns/fears. 3. Work with them to resolve conflicts between your own points of view and needs --- and their points of view and needs. 4. Help them to understand that working-together we can Do-Better than Working-Apart or Working-In-Opposition. If we are busy doing the above we are not very likely to be busy preparing to engage in alienative and destructive activities which have often consumed all of the wealth, integrity and health of communities tied up in conflicts. Healthy people take for granted that it more enjoyable and normal to be cooperating with each other; than to be contending with each other. Competition is not taken for granted by True-Lovers who are Healthy. Distrust is not taken for granted. Be-Together in the Many-Gracious ways of Shalom. (c) 2007 by Paul A. Smith in "Search for Honesty and Integrity" (On Being Yourself Whole and Healthy) ==========================================================
