Conflicts, Communications, and Relationships

This course offers students a chance to develop their communication skills in all types of relationships. A series of scenarios describe typical conflicts between friends, siblings, parents and children, and an employee and boss. A leading adolescent psychologist helps students understand the scenarios by showing how maximizing communication, listening, and mediation skills can help to resolve most conflicts. Students take turns figuring out what they would do to enhance the communication and resolve the conflict for each situation.
