Mark Lowther was a SWAT Crisis/Hostage Negotiator and is currently an international instructor for negotiation. He spent time in Ukraine in 2022, teaching mediation, dispute resolution, and hostage negotiation techniques. He worked with mostly civilians, teaching them how to engage in dialogue to avoid escalating to disputes.
In this throwback episode of Negotiations Ninja, Mark gave us a firsthand look at what was happening in the war zone. As the war between Russia and Ukraine still wages, we can’t forget about the lives that continue to be impacted.
