The Conflict Cycle

Thursday, May 24

2:00-3:00 PM

Ever wonder why some conflicts seem to never end? You’ll have a conflict with someone, talk it out, it gets better for awhile, then you find yourself right back where you were before you “resolved” the conflict.

Learn about the cycle conflict takes and about two behaviors that may keep a conflict from really being resolved. Lincoln Community Dispute Resolution volunteer and trained mediator, Nancy Nash, offers you the opportunity to understand your own attitudes toward conflict and a communication error that we often make that keeps conflict on the cycle.
