Define conflict

·         According to Kennesaw State Center for Conflict Management,

o   Conflict- you see it on the nightly news and in the daily newspapers and have probably experienced it in your own life.

o   Conflict can be internal or external, occurring between individuals, groups, or society; reflecting our variety of desires, opinions and needs.

o    Despite the negative consequences often associated with conflict, it can also serve as a point of change, growth and creative thinking.

o   Rather than right or wrong, conflict is often about differences.

o   In this light, conflict can be used to build more just communities and to deepen relationships.

Define conflict management and resolution

·         Conflict management is a set of tools and a way of thinking that can help prevent conflict and engage it once it arises.

·         Conflict management education teaches the different ways in which people choose to react when confronted with conflict situations and the effect of those reactions on potential outcomes.

·         More importantly, conflict management is about learning skills which provide the ability to respond in a manner that can help prevent and manage conflict by reducing ineffective responses.

·         Effective communication and critical thinking skills are at the core of conflict management.

·         The ability to form compassionate questions, challenge perceptions, listen actively, and speak assertively can dramatically impact the course of a conflict.
