This webinar, presented by Sarah Goldsworthy, builds on a number of assumptions relating to conflict, such as:    

  • conflict comes from difference and its manifestation in relationships
  • conflict is inevitable in social systems and has a very significant impact on peoples’ lives
  • conflict can be helpful if managed well
