Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Conflict resolution is a counseling skill (Ivy, 1994; Haley, 1976; Pearce, 1996). Counselors are in a unique place to both promote conflict resolution skills and use counseling skills while practicing conflict resolution for longer lasting and therapeutic resolutions. Two environments in which counselors have been especially active regarding conflict resolution have been in the schools and in the family (Moore, 1996).
To take a closer look at conflict resolution, this paper will do the following: define conflict resolution; look at common attitudes and ways of handling conflict; examine the effects of destructive conflict resolution and the effects of teaching constructive conflict resolution; and look at how some communities and schools are introducing conflict resolution skills. What the counselor's role has been and could be concerning conflict resolution skills will be discussed throughout, but will be specifically addressed in the conclusion.
