Conflict Management Group

Whether they get into an argument over a game, what to watch on TV, or whose turn it is to clean up, conflicts are common in children and a normal part of human relationships. The problem is that often children get into conflict because they don’t have the skills to solve it themselves. If left alone the conflict gets bigger and usually then the person who is louder, stronger or more aggressive wins. Unresolved conflicts can spoil friendships and affect children’s confidence. When conflicts are left simmering they can negatively affect children’s mental health and well-being.

In this group children learn skills for conflict resolution, which include skills for managing emotions, as well as thinking skills for problem-solving and communicating with others.

• being able to control angry or anxious feelings

• learning to listen even when you disagree

• understanding the other person’s opinions and feelings

• being able to think of different solutions

• exchanging ideas with the other person

• finding ‘win-win’ solutions.
