    4. What is the difference between conflict and violence? Conflict A state of open, often prolonged fighting; a battle or war. A state of disharmony between incompatible or antithetical persons, ideas, or interests; a clash. Psychology. A psychic struggle, often unconscious, resulting from the opposition or simultaneous functioning of mutually exclusive impulses, desires, or tendencies.

    5. Violence Physical force exerted for the purpose of violating, damaging, or abusing: crimes of violence. The act or an instance of violent action or behaviour. Abusive or unjust exercise of power.

    6. Can Conflict be Positive? Yes: - it can shape our thinking so that we have a better understanding of people, situations and ideas. - it brings the parties closer together - an expression of feelings

    7. Can Conflicts be Negative? Yes: - if parties are not flexible and open-minded - if conflict is taken personal (get backs up) - if not resolved, tensions can build and get worse - communication, verbalising and hearing ideas and feelings are key. If this breaks down can lead to violence.
