    Managing Conflict In Relationships

    Presented by Mia Logan, Ph.D

    • Discover your strengths in dealing with conflict.
    • Discuss what causes conflict.
    • Identify one area in which we can improve our conflict resolution skills.

    We will begin by defining conflict and discussing what causes it.  We will then examine both current and past conflict challenges we have experienced and didentify specific competencies or behaviors that we have used or could use to resolve such issues.  We will work together to determine the answers to such questions as:


    • What do you plan to do differently when confronted with a conflict in the future?
    • How will you make this change?
    • What support do you need to make it happen?
