Emotion versus Logic

Emotion always wins. Add a new tool to add to your tool box. Recognizing when a client is dug in and in what area – emotion or logic.  What emotion has to be satisfied to reach an acceptable solution for the emotional need?   With the understanding that one participant is coming from logical thinking – speaking in ABC  terms – and the other participant is driven by an emotional need – speaking in XYZ terms – opens the door for mediators to do what they do so well,  finding an acceptable, workable solution.
