Dealing with Conflict

Not many people like to deal with conflict in their lives.  Many avoid conflict by not talking about the issue, some even avoid the person they are in conflict with altogether so that they don’t have to deal with it at all.  It is very easy to fall into that trap.  Relationships breakdown and what started small often develops into something that seems insurmountable.  I like to focus on the problem not the person.  That is what those of us who practice in the fields of mediation and collaborative law have come to find can get you to a place where you are able to resolve your conflict and reach an agreement that you can both live with.
