1a. Who was involved in the conflict? What was the relationship between the participants prior to the conflict? Did it appear as if the relationship between the participants had any impact on how either person responded to the conflict?
For centuries, violence has been the go to way to settle conflicts, but it has also been very controversial throughout the years. While some say war is important in order to maintain our freedom, it is actually a very unnecessary and destructive way of settling conflicts because it kills so many innocent people and it hardly ever accomplishes anything for such a hefty price.
QP provided William with a CBT activity geared towards dealing with conflict. QP explained to William that the activity will teach him how to deal with conflict by speaking up and decreasing tattling and need for adult intervention. QP examined with William, how he respond to anger situations. QP encouraged William in discussing how he workout different anger situations. QP asked William, if he has tried negotiating with his parents over a situation instead or respond to it by being angry and aggressive. QP asked William to list some situations and events that cause him to get angry. QP discussed with William cues to make good choices when in conflict situation. QP discussed with William alternatives to getting into fights and conflict situations.
As a demographic phenomenon, ethnicity is belonging to a specific ethnic group possessing distinct culture and common origin. This is called inscriptive group identity. According to Said Edward (1993) a good introduction to matters of societal concern and especially those of
All of us will face conflict in our lives, it is inevitable. Pegues, in her book, Confronting without offending: Positive and Practical Steps to Resolving Conflict, gives the reader a thorough guide to confronting others with a biblical twist. She divides the book into five sections: Confrontation: The Bridge to Harmony, Biblical Confrontation and Conflict Management Styles, Strategies for an Effective Confrontation, Confrontation and Personality temperaments, and finally, Confrontation Guidelines for Selected Situations. In part one, Pegues guides the reader through the goal of confrontation and explains the differences between confrontation and retaliation. She accomplishes this using scripture such as, romans 12:18, “If it is possible,
Before we even begin to start to analyze how conflict theory and riots go together we must first understand what conflict theory is. Conflict theory is a macro level theory that was developed by a man named Karl Marx. Conflict theory is based on the tensions and struggle that goes on in our daily lives through groups we are involved in. There are a few different parts that make up conflict theorist views on sociological perspective. First, the main part is that our society promotes general differences in people's wealth, power, and success. Wealth, power and success are what many of us a people want or desire. Some groups in our society benefit from social arrangements at the expenses of a group who is less privileged than the other group.
Nice job on your post, but I do have a question which is: since law was created in conflict and natural order, who is to say that the law is right? Can the law be bended to fit whomsoever purposes mainly the wealthy verse the poor? To this learner I think this is where the birth of Conflict theory was born, because we all have different ideas of what is right or wrong, which can change based on the power that be, why is that?
What is ethnicity and why does it matter? Ethnicity is; “the fact or state of belonging to a social group that has a common national or cultural tradition.” Our dreams and opinions create meaning about race and ethnicity, and plays an important role in shaping the way we understand race and ethnicity as part of our identity, our social institutions, our history, and our everyday lives. Often used mutually, race is a way of classifying individuals and groups on the analysis of physical characteristics, mainly one’s skin color. Ethnicity lays out one’s place of origin or nationality, one’s ancestry or cultural background``, one’s language and by extension, one’s belief system. Nevertheless, how does this affect how the authors ethical impacted
In contrast to the idea of race, Ethnicity refers to ethnic affiliation, or the “cultural practices and outlooks of a given community of people that set them apart from others” (Giddens, 1997:210). Members of a particular ethnic group see themselves as culturally distinct from other groups of people in a society or culture. There are different characteristics which serve as a way of
Marvin Carlson’s article argues about whether plays are better experienced purely through text or through performance. He discusses the conflict theorists dealt with when they wanted to perform Shakespeare’s plays. Some theorists believed that Shakespeare’s texts were a magnificent work on their own and that any performance needed to be as close to the text as possible. This caused theorists to regard performance as unnecessary since it had the potential to ruin the text. This type of theory carried on past the romantic period and some theorist continue to believe that plays should keep to the original script as much as possible. Carlson cites Charles Lamb commenting on how performances of Hamlet diminish the quality of Shakespeare’s work. Marvin then explains how
The conflict theory approach emphasizes issues of inequality and change in relation to social class, money, race ethnicity and gender. The conflict theory pinpoints the belief that these social classifications are parasitic: only benefiting one group while negatively affecting another. In particular, the social conflict approach focuses on the struggles that lower-class people face in a world where the rich and powerful benefits at their expense. Persons of the lower-class are often disadvantaged, since they are not given a chance to move ahead and are always stuck at the bottom of the social ladder. Upper-class individuals are able to fully educate their children, and hence, their generation will always be rich and powerful. However, a weakness
Conflict theory is the theory that human behavior in social contexts is the result of conflicts between competing groups, as different social groups, be they class-, gender- or race-defined, have unequal power and access to power, yet all groups compete for limited resources. This inevitably gives rise to tension and conflict, albeit often of the subtle variety, as oftentimes the conflicts between groups have been institutionalized in society to such a degree that the conflicts and tensions are such an expected part of society that the conflict, and inequality, itself disappears from public sight, and consciousness. For example, an adherent of a world systems theory of conflict would point to the global competition for resources, particularly the inequality between rich and poor nations struggling to provide the basic necessities of life to their inhabitants, as evidence of global conflict. Conflict theories seek to explain the interactions of groups within society, and assert that social order is preserved involuntarily through the exercise of power one social class holds over another (Lindsey, 2010, 7). The conflict between groups is not always obvious or apparent, so it must be unraveled and examined in order to identify and establish the impact of such conflict on society as a whole, as well as individual members and social groupings.
Karl Marx, a famous German philosopher and sociologist, was a communist (Econfaculty). Which might turn some heads; however, his perspectives on certain issues are highly touted in the sociological world. He revolutionized the way in which people believe society is ran. So much so, that his most profound theory is one of the three major sociological paradigm that is studied in arguably every sociology class within the first week or two. Conflict Theory, created by Marx in the 1800s, is in the realm of macro level theories which relate more to larger scale issues as well as larger groups of people. Whereas the micro level of theories relate to very specific relationships – usually between individuals (OpenStax CNX. 2012). The paradigm of
In this class, the idea of Conflict Theory was brought up very early on. I really enjoy the concept and find it incredibly useful when considering complex topics. Conflict theory, which was originally a concept in which Karl Marx is largely attributed, theorizes that conflict arises due to limited resources and the competition to secure those resources. The theory says that as long as there is a limit on how much of something there is (and since we all live on a giant ball that has a set amount of every resource, there always will be), then there will be people who fight to have control of it. For me, I find this theory in action everywhere, and I routinely use it as a logical deduction tool to deduce the underlying motivations of those around me.
This is a research about conflict which should be considered and resolute during a project. Although, six experts are from different background, there are many sufficient methods to deal with different kind of issues during the working. The great mode has used in the research is Thomas-Kilmann’s conflict mode instrument. (Thomas, K. W., & Kilmann, R. H. ,1974). There are five effective approaches are discussed. Each approaches have its positive and negative effects. Also, there are many problems that each expert should consider about themselves which can devote their effort to help finish the project successfully. Achieving mastery through a comprehensive study of all of these methods can finally bring a huge success to the whole project.
