Conflict is a common aspect of life that is difficult to avoid because everyone is different from others and has his or her own opinions. The important thing to remember though is that although conflicts may seem unavoidable, one can still learn how to handle conflict and come out with a better relationship. In “Conflict—The Unexpected Gift” (published by iUniverse) authors Jack Hamilton, Elisabeth Seaman, Sharlene Gee, and Hillary Freeman create a highly detailed and comprehensive approach to conflict resolution.
It is an extremely useful book that shows readers how to recognize the assumptions that cause conflicts and how to defuse a situation before it becomes an intractable argument. This book also shows readers how to resolve conflicts in a positive manner using subtle yet effective techniques. Included in this book is a myriad of tips to help readers develop conflict-resolution skills. Each chapter offers concrete steps and real-life vignettes that teach new ways of communicating. Readers will be able to learn how to resolve conflicts and build more viable relationships with family members, friends, coworkers, neighbors and other people with whom one interacts.
“Conflict—The Unexpected Gift” will surely help readers not only repair broken relationships but also develop new and better ones. It also shows that by working through one’s conflicts, one learns to let go of unfounded assumptions and pave new chapters in one’s relationships. It ultimately teaches that when reconciled, a conflict can be the gift of a second chance
