LB5526 - Conflict Management and Engagement

Credit points:03
Year:2015
Student Contribution Band: Band 3
Administered by:College of Business, Law & Governance

This subject acknowledges that many conflicts may not be resolved at all, completely, or quickly. Students gain a greater understanding of the role of a conflict professional in supporting clients in long-term management of conflict, beyond any potential resolution. Students learn about characteristics that make conflicts enduring and are introduced to constructive approaches to managing ongoing conflict. The subject delivers a range of strategies and techniques to assist clients in engaging effectively in ongoing conflict, including: handling conflict avoidance; using and responding to power wisely; appropriate conflict communication and developing support systems for conflicting parties.

Learning Outcomes

  • evaluate complex conflict and related theories and standards for professional practice in conflict management and resolution;
  • critically analyse complex conflicts and conflict management systems;
  • provide specialised advice to assist individuals, groups and organisations to constructively manage conflict;
  • effectively communicate with, facilitate and support people in personal, group, organisational and cross-cultural conflict;
  • independently and critically reflect on and assess their own capabilities and performance, and make use of feedback as appropriate, to support personal and professional development and research.
