Most courses on conflict emphasize ways to avoid or negotiate conflicts. While these are important subjects this course assumes that conflict is a pervasive, normal, part of human relations. Indeed, many conflicts, such as elections and business competition, are institutionalized in our society. Some conflicts are not socially sanctioned and thus usually include covert acts. This course will look at both individual and group conflict. Hopefully it will help the participants avoid conflict when possible and teach them how to respond to unavoidable conflicts.
