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.
This subject will be taught online through LearnJCU. Students must engage in online learning from the first week of the study period and throughout the entire study period. There will be online collaborate sessions scheduled throughout the semester.
|We do not recommend enrolling in this subject as your very first subject at JCU, unless you are concurrently enrolled in one of the core subjects of the Grad Cert or Master of Conflict Management and Resolution, or you have been given advanced standing for the core subjects of your degree.|
