Four topics I write about

Conflict has so much influence in individual lives and collective societies that my blog posts have four categories:

#1 Conflict Competence topics of Doing Conflict Better.

These articles and posts cover many Conflict Competencies. Conflict competence is a great life skill I’m delighted to use in the service of my clients and volunteer organizations. I also rely on those same conflict competencies when life tests me. Since everyone experiences conflict sometime, Doing Conflict Better is this category.

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

In this category, I write about conflict in popular culture, fiction, and nonfiction using examples from others’ imagination and my own, and about the joys of living breastlessly. Being conflict competent 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 answers questions you ask, with T.I.P.s (Theory, Implementation, Practice) to prevent a conflict, manage your current conflict, or be prepared for your next conflict.

These TIPs are my responses to your questions about conflicts, posed during workshops I teach, or that you submit online.

#4 The Cassandra File posts are my opinions, where 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.
