2 ECTS

Lecture contents

In this module, an overview of working with conflict is given. Causes, phases and escalation stages are discussed. Personal conflict styles are reflected upon. The structure and sequence of a constructive conflict conversation is elaborated through conflict analysis tools and conflict resolution strategies, with the help of methods of intervention (like conflict moderation). Goals, areas of implementation, phases and principles of mediation, as well as basic attitudes within mediation are taught. Mediation techniques and their possibilities and limitations within Social Work are presented and tried out through role playing. Approaches for dealing with conflict through mediation are elaborated upon. An insight into the preparation and implementation of negotiations in private and professional contexts is given (i.e. as a resource to establish support systems in the area of Social Work). Helpful communication models for de-escalation and further communication and negotiation techniques are applied.
