Reconciling A Sexual Assault & De-Escalating Street Conflict

Released Friday, 5th July 2019
Good episode? Give it some love!
We offer two stories this time. In Part One, a story of restorative
justice and reconciliation between a woman, who was a victim of a
non-consensual sexual assault during a casual date in college, and the man
who assaulted her. We'll hear about an all-too-rare resolution where the
perpetrator becomes inspired to make things more right by admitting his
guilt first to his victim, then publicly and teaming up with the victim to
share their story together to promote consent, and help reduce sexual
abuse in dating.
This full story can be heard on the podcast Reckonings. We present a bit
of a short cut version of it today on our show by interviewing the
Reckonings producer and host Stephanie Lepp.
In part two of the hour-long program, we explore an emerging practice
within conflict resolution. When interpersonal conflicts arise, our
capacity for care and compassion can sometimes be eclipsed by other
emotions. De-escalation is a technique that helps people return to that
place of balance.
Sarah Holtz talks with Lindsey Krinks who leads trainings in de-escalation
on behalf of the non-profit she co-founded, which is called Open Table
Nashville. Though she predominantly works with homeless communities,
Lindsey emphasizes the degree to which de-escalation can be beneficial to
anyone facing conflict.
