Chapter 6 makes it clear that Conflicts do not occur in a vacuum. The conflict climate, consisting of threats of power abuse, competition, distrust and defensiveness, may cause the conflict to escalate. How does Chapter 6 relate to your life situation? The purpose of this essay is to apply correctly the key concepts, principles, and suggestions from Chapter 6 to conflicts in your life.

In 250-500 words, write a brief essay in which you apply key concepts and suggestions from Chapter 6 to your own life situation, past, present, or future. The Objectives and Key Terms at the top of Chapter 6 identify the key concepts in the chapter. Address the following questions in your essay:

• Define and explain two key concepts from the reading that stood out to you; please include page numbers, cite from the textbook, and end the essay with a reference to the textbook (citations/ references should be in APA style).
• Include suggestions the authors make that would help you better manage conflicts (again include page numbers and references to the textbook)
• Then explain how you could use the concepts that you identified to better manage a conflict in the past, present, or future.

Your essay must meet the following criteria:

• Minimum/maximum (250-500 words) limit
• Identified 2 key concepts per chapter, defined, and explained them (key concepts are printed in bold in the text).
• Identified at least one suggestion from the chapter.
