Conflict Management education addresses the issues that divide our world by encouraging communication, fostering positive relationships and developing comprehensive, long-term solutions. Further, it enhances the safety and vitality of our families, communities and workplaces. Conflict management is also a set of tools and a way of thinking that can help not only prevent conflict, but effectively engage it once it arises. Conflict management education teaches the various ways people choose to react when confronted with conflict situations and the effect of those reactions on potential outcomes. Studying conflict is really about learning skills which provide the ability to respond in ways that help prevent and manage conflict by reducing ineffective responses. Conflict Management is a diverse, interdisciplinary field with corporate, non-profit, public administration, international and legal applications.
