Dealing with conflict

Thursday, 6 June 2013

Blog post written by Sam D, Jackson and William

In the last few weeks we have been learning about dealing with conflict and problems.
Below we have different ways people respond to conflicts that we used to role play  situations that we have happened to us.


AVOID

  • Forget about it and forget about the other person
  • Walk away
  • Don’t get involved
  • Become resentful


COMPROMISE
  • Nether person gets want they want but they each get a bit of something
  • A bit of give and take
  • Give some and gain some

FIGHT
  • Don’t let the other person get what they want
  • Get what you want
  • Someone wins and someone loses

PROBLEM SOLVE
  • Together both people think of a solution where both sides can be satisfied
  • A win/win situation
  • Negotiate

SMOOTH
  • let the other person have what they want
  • Surrender
  • Sacrfice

One of the examples we discussed and role played was if two kids want the same book at the same time. What should they do? Which technique should they use to solve it?
Possible solutions that we talked about were that you could share the book or read the same book at the same time or one person could read a different book and when they’re finished, they can swap.


“I” Statement
We also learned about "I" statements and how to use them in a conflict with another person.

An “I” statement is when you say what you feel to the other person when you’re in a conflict. We practiced using these in conflict situations.
An  example is: “I feel hurt when you laughed at me when I fell over. I don’t like what you said to me and I think you should say sorry”.

Here is a video talking more about I-statements:

Hello Room 13 fellow quad blogging budies,

I think that this is great that the students are learning about how to react in different situations. This will help them in the future and i wish my school did that sort of things. I think that by helping them it is helping to lead to a healthy work and play environment.

Dear Room 13,

It's great to see people making videos on how to deal with conflict. I hope that it will help others. It was interesting how different the conversation went when instead of 'you it was 'I'.
