WHAT IS CONFLICT?
Conflict is a part of life and in most cases is manageable without the need for third-party intervention. Most people have a natural response to conflict, although it is not always constructive or healthy. Learning to resolve conflict is an acquired skill that is most effective when viewed from the perspective of each disagreeing party. Conflict resolution therapy can help patients learn how to successfully solve present and future conflicts with assertiveness and confidence.
SOURCES OF CONFLICT
Conflict can arise from any source, and it is usually unexpected. Some of the most common sources of conflict are family members, friends, and co-workers; although conflicts can also occur between individuals who do not have an existing relationship with each other. Usually, a difference of opinions is worsened by variances in personality and natural modes of resolving conflict. Rather than act out of self-gratification or an authoritarian style of handling conflict, counseling can teach patients to handle disputes and arguments in a calm and non-provoking way that fosters clear and direct communication, as well as respect for the disagreeing party.
HOW A CONFLICT RESOLUTION THERAPIST CAN HELP
Conflict resolution therapy takes a look at the heart of the matter — the underlying cause of the conflict. For the most part, conflicts are caused by emotional distress and reactions. Our therapists take a problem-solving approach in order to help find solutions, resolutions, and relieve the tension. Since relationships are so crucial to our lives and play an integral role to our happiness, having the skills and tools you need to understand and manage conflict can help you have happy, healthy, and thriving relationships now and in the future.
In some cases, a conflict resolution therapist can serve as a mediator in the midst of a disagreement. Having a conflict resolution therapist present can ensure that all parties involved express themselves clearly and that boundaries are respected. The goal is to help participants achieve an equally appealing solution through collaborative problem-solving and communication.
