    "A Listing of Brown's human rights works through nearly four decades reads like a South African struggle Who's Who"

    VERNE HARRIS, NELSON MANDELA FOUNDATION

    At last, Henry Brown tells his story. 

     

    And what a story it is. His early law experience in Cape Town cast him into the centre of the South African Struggle when he represented key anti-apartheid activists including Nelson Mandela on Robben Island, Winnie Mandela, Zach de Beer, Albie Sachs, Robert Sobukwe and many others. Working with SWAPO (the South West African People's Organisation) and the International University Exchange Fund brought him into contact with the notorious government spy, Craig Williamson. Then, moving on to Britain, Brown rose to become a senior level partner at a City of London law firm, gaining national and international recognition through his pioneering of mediation and Alternative Dispute Resolution, with his objective to bring humanity and Ubuntu into the practice of law and the resolution of disputes.

    Henry co-created this book and DVD with Neil Dawson and Brenda McHugh in 2006 for the national family lawyers’ organisation Resolution (then called the Solicitors Family Law Association).

    Psychology, Emotion and Intuition in Work Relationships: The Head, Heart and Gut Professional

    With psychotherapists Neil Dawson and Brenda McHugh, his co-authors on Managing Difficult Divorce Relationships, Henry wrote a professional development book published by Routledge (Taylor and Francis) in March 2018. Consultants to the book are Professor Peter Fonagy, chief executive of the Anna Freud Centre, and neuroscientist Dr Rohan da Silva.

    The publisher’s description refers to it as “based on a sound theoretical perspective combined with practical guidance” and highlighting “the increasing importance of human relations in professional life. In modern society, all those who work with or provide services to others are increasingly called upon to be not just technical experts, but also ‘head, heart and gut professionals’ – who can work and relate to others with their head, heart, and gut.”
