Avoid potential conflict both professionally and personally by learning to organize your thinking and responding calmly. Consider the approaches you can take to prevent and respond to verbal conflict. This course will explore the communication process, conflict prevention, and help you understand why conflicts occur. Instruction will also cover certain circumstances in which verbal de-escalation techniques may not be appropriate, and provide techniques to resolve such conflicts.
