What is Conflict Resolution?--Conflict resolution is focused on moving conflict presentation and escalation to solution. The approach emphasizes processes of behavior used to assist in this transformation to help commit disputing parties to mutually acceptable positions and to build and enlarge relationships of trust among them.
