This chapter zooms in to the micro dynamics of a single successful conference. It uses video recordings of a restorative justice conference between a street robber and his victim to reveal the processes by which rhythm and entrainment develop over the course of the conference. A close reading of discourse, facial expressions, and other non-verbal modes of communication show precisely how emotions can be transformed from negative to positive. Additionally, it further explores the role of turning points; identifies linguistic and paralinguistic cues that alter the emotional dynamics of a conference; and demonstrates how conferences can develop as power and status rituals.

Keywords:   case study, emotional dynamics, interaction, facial expressions, discourse analysis
