Conflict is a part of most every interpersonal relationship. Managing conflict, then, is important if the relationship is to be long-lasting and rewarding. Learning how to manage conflict involves being able to identify the steps in any escalating confrontation, and being able to stop the escalation and do emotional repair by reinforcing the positive aspects of the relationship.
Conflict seems to be the very stuff of life, bringing up all the most difficult emotions - anger, mistrust, resentment, loneliness - and the saddest outcomes. It makes us sad, depressed, but also unhealthy.
You have experienced your share of conflict in your life-and who hasn\'t? - You may even be afraid of conflict.
