Conflict Resolution Family - 5 Tips
Introduction to Resolving Conflict in Families
Conflict Communication in Families
The Goal is to have a Conflict Resolution Family
1. Do Describe Positively; Do Not Evaluate Negatively
Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.
- Use “I feel” messages, or at the least, messages from your perspective and not others
- Describe behaviours in a neutral and specific manner, avoiding generalizations
- Avoid disguised insults (ie. I feel like you are a bad husband or I feel like you hate me)
2. Do be a Problem Solver with others; Do not be Controlling
“He who agrees against his will, is of the same opinion still”
3. Do have Empathy, Do not be Indifferent
Empathy begins with understanding life from another person's perspective. Nobody has an objective experience of reality. It's all through our own individual prisms.
Sterling K. Brown
4. Do treat others as Equals; Do not act Superior
Here are the values that I stand for: honesty, equality, kindness, compassion, treating people the way you want to be treated and helping those in need. To me, those are traditional values.
5. Do use Provisionalism; Do not use Absolutes
Truth is a deep kindness that teaches us to be content in our everyday life and share with the people the same happiness.
