Complete list of posts

Conflict has so much influence in our lives and societies that I have four categories of blog posts:

#1 Conflict Competence topics of Doing Conflict Better.

These articles and posts cover many Conflict Competencies. Since everyone experiences conflict sometime, conflict competence is a great life skill.

#2 Writing about how conflicts are depicted in fiction, nonfiction, popular culture, news and current events.

I use examples of conflicts in popular culture, fiction, nonfiction, and others’ imagination. My own experience of using conflict competence allowed me to deal with the wretchedness of quadruple (yes, four) mastectomies after I was diagnosed with a rare, potentially deadly breast cancer.

#3 The Conflict Doctor is in, to answer questions you ask, with T.I.P. (Theory, Implementation, Practice)

I teach Theory, demonstrate how theory is Implemented, and give Practice time. My answers are grounded in solid theory, have real life applications, and you can practice the strategies immediately. TIPs are my responses to your questions about conflicts, such as, how to prevent a conflict, manage your current conflict, or be prepared for your next conflict. Most are posed during workshops I teach, or that clients ask, or are submitted online.

#4 The Cassandra File contains my opinions on conflict-related topics.

In these posts I take a stand and analyze conflicts without my usual professional impartiality.

Please leave comments, sign up to receive emails when I post, and ask me questions.
