Are you a parent struggling to maintain a peaceful home?
Do you have a hard time addressing disagreements with your boss or co-workers?
Do you and your partner have arguments that never seem to get resolved?
Conflict resolution therapy can teach you how to cope in challenging situations by helping you focus on finding solutions as you navigate conflict. In any type of relationship, be it personal or professional, conflict is bound to happen. It’s not reasonable or realistic to expect two people to always agree on everything. Even though conflict is a normal, healthy part of any relationship, dealing with it can feel anything but healthy or normal. Since disagreements are an expected part of life, learning to handle them positively and meaningfully is crucial.
After an argument with a friend, romantic partner, or co-worker, you may avoid them to “keep the peace.” You may hope that, over time, the issue will resolve itself. Avoiding conflict or pretending nothing happened will create additional tension as this unspoken problem remains between you and the other person.
The next time you have a disagreement, one or both of you will be angry or resentful from the previous dispute that was never resolved. Conflict resolution therapy will help you see conflict as an opportunity to develop your character and improve your relationships. You’ll learn to successfully manage stress, control emotions, and focus on resolving the issue at hand.
So if you:
- Have a co-worker you struggle to get along with
- Can’t seem to come to an agreement with your significant other on important issues
- Have an argumentative friend or family member
- Want to learn how to communicate more effectively with your spouse or partner
- Need help managing your emotions during an argument
- Want to find healthier, more effective ways of expressing your needs in general… then, conflict resolution therapy may be a good fit for you.
You can learn how to find the source of conflict to work quickly towards a resolution. We’ll teach you to focus on a solution instead of shutting down, blaming, or resenting another person.
Conflict resolution therapy will help you learn that while you can’t control other people, you can control how you respond.
If you’re having difficulties in the workplace or at home and need support, conflict resolution therapy can teach you conflict resolution skills to handle any situation. Contact our office today to schedule an appointment.
