Are you sick and tired of conflict? Many feel that their clashes with others are pointless, painful experiences that intensify frustrations. But learning how to handle conflict can transform your experience and revitalize your relationships. Whether it's your partner or your boss, your sister or your father-in-law, this book will help you understand yourself better and approach conflict with a new perspective. Conflict doesn't have to be a stumbling block in your relationships; it can be the cornerstone of a new way of relating. Looking at the different factors that influence how we relate to other people, psychologists Sara Savage and Eolene Boyd-MacMillan draw on years of research to explain the factors at play in conflict, and how to overcome them. Complete with self-assessment quizzes, this book will guide you to greater self-awareness and equip you with the tools to tackle conflict effectively.
