All relationships have conflicts (even Norby) because conflict is simply a disagreement. With this in mind, students experience conflict with parents, professors, friends, and roommates. This session will introduce some basic relationship definitions and walk students through how to handle and resolve conflict. After this session, students will know what to do when they experience conflict and be challenged to see conflict as an opportunity to improve rather than damage their relationships.


Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate interpersonal skills consistent with student success.
  2. Communicate their needs effectively and consistently.
  3. Differentiate healthy relationships (their own or others’) from unhealthy relationships.
  4. Manage conflict successfully and constructively.
