Dealing with conflicts
Dealing with Conflicts

  • Conflict- a struggle or opposition between people, especially when people compete for something in the belief that only one can have what he or she wants, at the expense of the other.

  • Small situations are settled without much fuss. Example: Bumping into someone down the hall.

  • Sometimes conflicts can occur from just that. The difference lies in how people react to the problem.

Dealing with Conflicts

  • Violence- A brutal physical force intended to damage or injure another. While it is important to remain calm and try and avoid a conflict if possible if you ignore the conflict it may become worse.

  • Feud- A bitter continuing hostility often involving groups of people.

  • The Hatfields and McCoys lived on opposite banks of the river that separates eastern Kentucky and West Virginia. It is believed that a theft of a hog may have caused it. What it did lead to was a very costly and deadly war between the families that consumed and ravaged their families, counties, and states. Eventually the US Supreme Court finally had to come in and settle after 40 years!!

  • Working on your conflict and communicating is important to try and settle the conflict and to prevent someone from getting hurt.


Viewing your enemy
Viewing your Enemy

  • At some point during a conflict you stop viewing the person as just another person and now they become the enemy.

  • The Hatfields were missing a pig and someone said they saw an extra pig on the McCoy’s land and that is how the shooting started.

  • Problems quickly multiply. People embroiled in a conflict stop communicating. Soon they hate one another on vague, and general principles.

  • Now people are forced to pick sides and more people are forced to become involved and this is where violence comes into play.

  • Tolerance- Accommodation and acceptance of differences between oneself and others.

  • That may never happen if people don’t stop and talk and try and communicate with one another.

  • First step is to put the problem into words and then start to work on the solution.


Decision making process
Decision Making Process

  • Describe the Problem’s Parts- Breaking problems into parts will make it more manageable. Usually you will start off with the smaller components of the problem and work your way to the larger components.

  • If an emotion you are on starts to fill you with resentment and anger you may to re-evaluate the part you are working and either come back to it or work with someone you trust to help you through it.

  • Brainstorm- Involves thinking up many different solutions to the problem. During this step don’t try and solve the problem but come up with creative and fun solutions to it that may make it enjoyable for you. With all of these solutions right them down because they can either be used or combined with other ideas and that will make the solution that much better.


Decision making process1
Decision Making Process

  • Think about each solution- In thinking about each solution, judge it based on your own values and emotions. Imagine and list probable outcomes that can be both positive or negative. Compare the ideas and rank them best to worst. Also consider the practicality of each solution.

  • Choose a Solution and Act on it: Once you have though all possible solutions out, you can pick one that fits your values and personal circumstances. Evaluate the solution.

  • Did you receive the results that you expected?

  • How did the solution fit with your values and beliefs?

  • Did the Solution fail to meet your needs?

  • Evaluate the Outcome: If the idea worked you can keep it and if it didn’t work you can go back and completely change it or just modify it just a little bit.
