Dealing with conflict therefore relies on learning to listen well to the person, and a commitment to create new attitudes and expectations based on new kinds of relationships.
Person centred thinking and planning is a set of skills and techniques designed to help us listen well to what the person is telling us, to explore and expand new possibilities, and to build new kinds of relationships.
This pack aims to provide a few tools to help people understand their conflicts, to build their resilience that will help them cope with conflict better, and to ensure that conflict is handled in a respectful way for all parties, so that the energies created by conflict are directed toward achieving positive change in the person’s life.
On a personal, Max Neill was a friend who passed away several years back. We all miss him!
