“Style Matters": Handling Conflict in My Life 


   Most of us would not write conflict into the script of our lives. However, if we viewed conflict as an opportunity to understand ourselves & others better, we might not run from it quite so quickly.

   This practical, interactive and informative time explores different conflict styles identified by the work of Dr. Ron Kraybill.  Together, we will:

  • Discuss how our ideas about conflict have been shaped
  • Learn about five conflict styles
  • Identify your primary conflict style
  • Practice expressing what you need in conflict situations
  • Understand others’ needs in conflict situations
  • Address our strengths & struggles in handling conflict

   Whether experienced in a workshop format or at a weekend retreat for women or couples, you will leave with new insights & helpful tools. This may just be the most fun you will ever have discussing conflict!
