The Circle of Conflict

Information in the Circle of Conflict pdf is taken from Chapter four of Gary T. Furlong’s book The Conflict Resolution Toolbox: Models and Maps for Analyzing, Diagnosing, and Resolving Conflict. This tool helps users to understand and navigate diverse perspectives in a productive way. Strategies for dealing with differences in data, structure and interest problems are taken verbatim from the book, as well as a two page worksheet that directs users through the steps of identifying and working toward a common outcome for all parties.
