In order to truly embrace conflict, one must first understand what conflict is, what its root causes are, and how conflict in and of itself is neither inherently good or bad. Linked below is a PowerPoint presentation created by our friend and colleague, Mr. Jay Wilgus, JD. Jay first shared this presentation at the Association for Student Conduct Administration’s annual convention in 2012. With his permission, we have modified the presentation slightly, and offer it to you as both a static presentation, and as part of a dynamic workshop, in which we will come to you and work with your team/community. Please note, this particular presentation is not intended as a conflict resolution program, but rather as a diagnostic tool to better and understand and diagnose conflict.
