Conflict Resolution Education Curriculum
Conflicts happen, conflicts grow, and learning how to deal with conflict is what this curriculum wants learners to know. A series of short videos teach viewers how to identify the source of a conflict, identify different types of conflicts, and resolve conflicts. Class members discover that conflict resolution has a cyclical pattern and stages and that there are strategies to keep a conflict from turning into a conflict spiral. Lessons focus on the importance of self-awareness and good communication skills, understanding underlying needs, and learning to regulate emotions. Pupils also learn when and how to negotiate and about the positive and negative effects of power.
