Conflict Resolution and Impact Factors

Recognising Escalating Conflict

Effective conflict resolution involves identifying warning signs that indicate potential escalation of conflicts.

Warning Signs of Escalation

  • Increased anger and verbal presence
  • Preventing onset of danger signs
  • Utilising discussed conflict resolution models

Danger Signs and Physical Reactions

Danger signs manifest as natural reactions to potential physical contact during conflicts.

Examples of Warning Signs

  • Direct, prolonged eye contact
  • Darkening facial colour
  • Backward head position
  • Tall and imposing stance
  • Kicking the ground

Examples of Danger Signs

  • Clenching and unclenching fists
  • Paler facial colour
  • Tightening of lips over teeth
  • Protective head positioning
  • Rising hands above waist

Impact Factors and Conflict Resolution

Identify impact factors as crucial considerations when managing conflicts. Similar to a mini risk assessment, impact factors help assess the situation.

Assessing Impact Factors:

  • Your own physical attributes
  • Other person's physical attributes
  • Health conditions or injuries
  • Physical capabilities

Applying Impact Factors in Conflict Resolution

Consider impact factors to determine the best approach for conflict resolution:

  • Height, build, and physical condition of individuals
  • Ability to handle physical confrontation
  • Assessment of own capabilities
  • Changes in impact factors during conflict

By evaluating warning signs, understanding danger signs, and considering impact factors, you can effectively manage conflicts and choose appropriate conflict resolution strategies.
