Special Ed Series Part 6: Adversarial or Aggressive?

Advocacy Styles: Adversarial or Aggressive?

Transport yourself back in time to feudal England by using your imagination.

Imagine that you are standing in a grassy field where a duel is about to take place.  The duel is between one landowner and a neighboring landowner.

The outcome of the duel will settle the dispute between them.

       But wait.  The two people who will do the dueling are not the landowners.  No.  The people who will settle the dispute in the duel are standing in for the land- owners; in other words, the landowners each hired people to fight the battle for them.  Now imagine that this system of stand-in dueling had been going on for several centuries.  Also, imagine that over the centuries a set of rules evolved that controlled how duels were supposed to be fought. 

          As you visualize this feudal dueling scene, imagine that one of the stand-ins vigorously waved at the other one and yelled across field,

"Hey, can't we talk this over?"
