SCOTTISH INDEPENDENCE: Experts in conflict resolution are to take part in a special online “day of dialogue” being staged in an effort to heal divisions caused by the independence referendum.

The event on Friday is being organised by the Cyrenians Scottish Centre for Conflict Resolution (SCCR) and aims to give people some tips and tools on how to deal with conflict at home, at work or with friends.

Leaders: United front begins to crack

Diane Marr, development manager at the Edinburgh-based charity and the lead behind its SCCR initiative, said: “We want to try to do something that helps pass on some expert advice to those people on how to resolve conflict and play even just a small part in trying to heal some of the rifts that have come about.”

The charity said it is keen for members of the public who have resolved their own differences over the independence referendum to share their experiences on social media.
