Overcoming Conflict

Conflict is common in relationships. Learn how to manage it well in yours.

Anger Management
Anger is a normal feeling. It is also inevitable that being around people you love will at some point make you angry. Figuring out how to manage your anger is important for yourself and your relationships.
Anger Cues and Measuring Anger

Myths About Anger
Afterdeployment.org's document on "Myths About Anger"
Stress-Management Training at Home
The same skills that Warfighters learn to manage stress in combat situations can be used to control the body’s stress responses during relationship conflicts. Try using positive thoughts to stay calm the next time you find yourself in an argument.
Conflict Resolution [PDF]
Conflict is inevitable between two people. Therefore, learning how to resolve it successfully is an important skill. Afterdeployment.org created this handout on strategies for resolving conflict that help you communicate better with your loved ones.
Relationship conflict
In all relationships, conflict management is often a key ingredient for success. However, the old belief that the best relationships are those without conflict is being replaced with the understanding that conflict is normal in intimate relationships. And the happiest couples are those who manage conflict without being destructive to each other. For more ideas on how to do this, check out HPRC’s Answer on relationship conflict.
