Communication & Conflict Resolution

Communication & Conflict Resolution

Even the most successful relationships struggle from time-to-time in the areas of communication and conflict. Communication breakdowns are not uncommon and they generally lead to even more relationship conflict. Effective communication and conflict resolution take a tremendous amount of work and dedication. People often bring their old tools from the past into new relationships and expect different results. A Pathways Christian therapist can help you learn effective communication and conflict resolution tools for working through problems with others and communicating successfully more often.

One or more of these signs may be present

For children, significant problems with teachers, other students, siblings, and parents

In adults, problems with boss, coworkers, and significant other

Sarcasm and hostile language

Dirty fighting, including aggressive, passive, and passive-aggressive behavior

Conflicts escalating to physical violence

What should I do?

When communication and conflict problems are significant or last a long time in children or adults, you should seek help from a professional. In the case of an adult or child who could become physical, you might choose to bring a backup person to help.
