Conflict Resolution

Course Number

During this two-hour training, participants will be discussing common conflicts between children that occur in the environment. Together, we will also discuss and understand the definition of conflict in a child’s perspective. Common management styles and reactions to conflict will be reviewed for participants to use as tool for identifying conflict origins. This course will also provide insight to the importance of structure, expectations, and consistency and how these key elements assist with resolving conflicts. Participants will learn about the side effects associated with avoiding conflict and how it can hinder appropriate social development.  We will deliberate and review researched problem solving strategies to use in the classroom to help reduce child interaction conflict.
