Assigned Discussion Questions: after reading all of Chapter 1, think of a specific conflict situation you experienced or observed. Analyze the situation using concepts from this chapter.  

  1. Did the conflict interaction have uncontrolled escalation or avoidance?
  2. Did the conflict go through differentiation and integration stages?
  3. What moves and countermoves did the involved parties use and did these moves affect the course of interaction in the conflict?
  4. Did the conflict interaction change the relationship?
  5. What was the climate of the situation and how did it affect the conflict interaction?

Each post should do the following:

  • Analyze the assigned discussion questions according to requirements for the week.
  • Make specific connections to the reading.
  • Posts will be made in the Canvas discussion forum 
  • Each post should be at least 3 paragraphs in length.
