Book: Initimate Relationships (third edition) Thomas N Badbury

In the course text, the authors suggest one way we understand/experience conflict is as a result of competing goals (originally proposed by Kurt Lewin).

You are expected to provide a (non-violent) interpersonal relationship conflict scenario – there are three approaches you can use to accomplish this: (you only need to choose one approach)

    1. Provide a link to a media source example (suggested approach)
    1. Personal story/connection example you are comfortable sharing
    1. Create a unique hypothetical example

Whichever approach you choose is up to you as long as it sufficiently accomplishes the primary goal of setting the stage to discuss an appropriate interpersonal relationships conflict scenario addressing each of the following: [2 points each]

    1. Set the stage: What is going on? Describe the conflict or problem scenario in adequate detail.
        1. Who are the two primary partners in conflict?
        1. What background information do we need to know or understand before moving forward?
        1. What is the nature of the conflict or problem?
        1. Why is this a problem?
    1. What are the conflicting goals (or presumed conflicting goals) for the two primary people in the conflict scenario?
        1. Goal for Partner #1
        1. Goal for Partner #2
    1. Indicate/connect/apply/describe at least three relevant destructive strategies from Table 10.1 to the scenario. {See table below}
        1. Destructive Strategy #1
        1. Destructive Strategy #2
        1. Destructive Strategy #3
    1. How would you describe/suggest utilizing at least three relevant constructive strategies from Table 10.1 to resolve this conflict? {See table below}
        1. Constructive Strategy #1
        1. Constructive Strategy #2
        1. Constructive Strategy #3
    1. Given what was discussed in the course text, what would you believe to be the most effective, respectful, functional, and/or realistic resolution to this conflict scenario given the goals of the two primary people involved? (This is required)
        • If available, or if you feel comfortable or are able to share, you are welcome to share the actual resolution to the conflict scenario. (This item in green is optional, not required.)


Set the stage: What is going on? Describe the conflict or problem scenario in adequate detail.


When you’re in a conflict or problem situation, it’s easy to get emotional and lose sight of what needs this situation is fulfilling. This can lead to blaming the other person, making them feel responsible for your own feelings (which isn’t fair). Instead, focus on identifying what specific circumstances have led up to this current scenario—this will help you clarify how things should go forward from here on out!

Identify the current situation:

The first step to writing a story is identifying the current situation. This can be done by describing the specific circumstances in which you find yourself, and what happened during those circumstances.

The second step is to describe these things with precision, but without getting too emotional about them or blaming anyone else for your troubles. Be as clear as possible about what has happened so far, but don’t dwell on it too much! You want to keep your audience engaged enough so they’ll want more information later on—but not so caught up in the drama that they stop listening altogether!

Is this an issue in your personal life or is it a work-related problem?

If the conflict is a personal matter, you should talk to your friends and family about it.

If the conflict is work-related, then you may have to discuss it with your boss.

There are two different reasons why this problem has come up: either they are both personal matters or they are both work-related ones. The best thing to do when faced with this dilemma is first try talking directly with one person in each category (e.g., your friends). If none of them can help solve the issue at hand, then consider talking directly with another person who understands both sides of things (e..g., coworkers). Once again though: don’t forget that there could be more than two people involved here!

What specific circumstances have led to the present situation? Be sure to describe the situation fully, but be careful NOT to get too emotional or fall into blaming.

To set the stage, you need to describe the situation in detail. This is important because it will help you explain how your character’s actions led to this point in time. Be sure to include all the relevant details: who, what and where are key here! If you can’t think of anything specific about a character’s life before this moment (like if they were working at another job), then don’t worry about it too much – just make sure that there’s enough information for us readers out there who haven’t met your main character yet.

What needs does this situation fulfill for you? For example, is it about being right, winning, etc.?

The first step in writing a good essay is to get clear about what you’re trying to accomplish. What needs does this situation fulfill for you? For example, is it about being right, winning or saving someone from something? This will help guide your writing and help frame the argument that supports your thoughts.

Identify the specific circumstances and clarify what needs is this situation fulfilling for you.

Identify the specific circumstances

Clarify what needs is this situation fulfilling for you.

Understand the needs and wants of all parties involved.

Be clear about your own needs and wants. You can’t expect others to support your goals if they’re not clear on them themselves!


The next step is to be clear about the problem. It’s important to understand what it is you’re dealing with and how your actions could affect the other person. The best way to do this is by asking yourself: “What does this situation mean for me?” Ask yourself questions like: “Does this matter at all? Is it something that needs fixing?” Then ask them if there are any solutions they might propose. Finally, make sure you’re both on the same page before moving forward with any plans of action!
