Dispute Resolution Skill Reflection Journal Synthesis Paper
Reflection Journal Synthesis
Use your reflection journals as a jumping off point for this exploration. Reread the work you produced so far, and note any comments made by the instructor. Consider the following: What are you thinking, feeling, and doing differently now, with regard to conflict? How has your concept and practice of conflict changed as result of the new ideas and skills introduced through the course?
Be specific. Provide concrete examples from your life, politics, etc. Show me what your takeaways look like in practice. Do not merely summarize your past journals. You must bring together those old ideas in new ways. Demonstrate your understanding of the relationship between the different topics we covered this semester. Show me how the skills, ideas, and concepts all work together to support your takeaways. How do those skills and concepts complement and enhance each other?
Essay 2: Conflict Resolution Practice (3 full pages double spaced)
For this essay, you will need to re-create some active listening exercises you did for earlier reflection journals, where you practice filter less/ solution less listening, paraphrasing, mirroring, affect labeling, and open-ended questions. Review these skills in your notes before doing the exercise. Try to choose a different person from past reflection journals and classroom activities.
The exercise will work best if you choose a speaker who is going through a difficult situation, or a speaker who feels challenging for you to interact with. It is up to you if you prefer to ask the person to help you practice, or if you want to try your skills during a normal conversation.
