How to Turn Conflict Into Intimacy
Conflict is inevitable but it doesn’t have to be debilitating. Discover simple principles from God’s Word to apply immediately to your relationships, diffusing conflict, creating win/win solutions and enhancing emotional intimacy. This session looks at ground rules for effective conflict resolution, as well as a suggested step-by-step strategy for managing conflicts. This strategy helps to slow the process down, and reduces inappropriate expression of feelings. You’ll watch two demonstrations and have two opportunities to practice the skills to more effectively handle conflicts. Let conflict open the door to greater intimacy in your relationships.
How to Confront Effectively
For many people, confrontation is the most difficult part of relating to others, yet it is essential to godly relationships. This session leads participants through guidelines and skills on how to confront others, from preparing for the confrontation to steps to take when confronting. Both verbal and nonverbal ways to handle resistance when confronting are considered. The demonstrations and practice in confronting effectively help you become more comfortable and effective in confronting others when necessary.
How to Respond to an Attack
Receiving confrontation well is just as important, and often even harder, than giving confrontation, especially when we are confronted in anger. In this session the participants discover ways to diffuse an attack. Demonstrations, followed by opportunities to practice the skill, show how to respond effectively and what to avoid doing when confronted in anger. Participants can dramatically see the difference that their reaction has when they are confronted in anger.
How to Help Others Manage Conflicts
Have you ever observed others experiencing conflict that they are unable to resolve on their own? This session gives participants two strategies to help others who are in conflict. The first strategy is helping one person who comes to you; the second is being a mediator between two people with a conflict. Each contains specific steps to take. Two demonstrations illustrate these strategies, followed by a discussion of how to apply the skills and practical application of how this skill can be used in our own lives.
We also offer training on interpersonal skills and how to live in community to draw people to the Lord.
