    Are you a parent of teenagers, struggling to maintain peace in your home? Do you have a hard time addressing disagreements with your boss or co-workers? Do you and your partner have arguments that never seem to get resolved? 

    Conflict resolution therapy can teach you how to cope in these and other challenging situations by helping you focus on finding solutions as you navigate conflict. At Joyful Living Behavioral Health in Eugene, Oregon, we offer this type of therapy, which will help you overcome conflict in any type of relationship, whether personal or professional.  

    Understanding Conflict  

    Conflict is bound to happen in every relationship—and is a normal, healthy part of it. It’s not reasonable or realistic to expect two people to always agree on everything. But trying to deal with it can feel anything but healthy or normal. Since disagreements are an expected part of life, learning to handle them in a positive and meaningful way is vital. 

    When Conflict Goes Unresolved 

    After an argument with a friend, romantic partner, or co-worker, you may avoid them to “keep the peace.” You may hope that over time, the issue will resolve itself.  

    Yet by avoiding conflict or pretending nothing happened, you’ll create additional tension as this unspoken problem remains between you and the other person. The next time you have a disagreement, one or both of you will be angry and resentful due to the previous disagreement because it was never resolved.  

    How Conflict Resolution Therapy Can Help  

    Conflict resolution therapy will empower you to see conflict as an opportunity to develop your character and improve your relationships. You’ll learn to successfully manage stress, control emotions, and focus on resolving the issue at hand. 

    What to Expect From Conflict Resolution Therapy  

    At Joyful Living, we can help you to find the source of conflict, so you can work quickly towards a resolution. We’ll teach you how to focus on a solution instead of shutting down, blaming, or resenting the other person. In the process, we will also help you learn that while you can’t control the other person, you can control how you respond.  

    The therapists at Joyful Living will employ a variety of techniques to help you navigate conflicts, including:  

    • Active listening: We’ll encourage you to listen attentively and empathetically to understand the other person’s perspective.  
    • Role-playing: We’ll practice conflict scenarios in a safe, controlled environment to develop and refine conflict resolution skills.  
    • Problem-solving exercises: During conflict resolution therapy, we will also work together to brainstorm and evaluate potential solutions to conflicts.  
    • Emotional regulation strategies: Your therapist will also teach you methods for managing emotions, such as deep breathing, mindfulness, and cognitive restructuring.
