Conflict Management

With head, heart and hand!

Advocacy, adjudication, bargaining, conciliation, mediation, negotiation, and withdrawal are examples of conflict management. Professionals in conflict management often encourage you to create mutual ground or a shared narrative. Ideally, this is to attain a workable outcome that you can live with to resolve your disputes. At times you may require impartial professionals to support you to achieve a sense of closure.   

Conflict management can be beneficial in situations involving groups such as

  • couples and families;
  • employers and employees;
  • retailers and suppliers;
  • teenagers and parents;
  • victims and offenders;
  • wherever conflict is seen to exist, for example, if you have signed a contract.

Policies and practices often fluctuate between diverse jurisdictions. Family law and other related issues might become quite emotionally laden areas. Professionals involved with conflict management could have varying styles, which can be shaped by their different ideas, values, and beliefs. 

The materials that you bring to conflict management sessions could include information gathered from telephone, email, and face-to-face sessions between you and others.  

A caveat Before interventions begin, you may want to sign an agreement that what happens in conflict management sessions is intended, for example, to remain confidential. To find out more about this caveat, including the rationale behind it, please contact us.
