    • Conflict Transformation
      • Definition: “Conflict transformation is to envision and respond to the ebb and flow of social conflict as life-giving opportunities for creating constructive change processes that reduce violence , increase justice in direct interaction and social structures , and respond to real-life problems in human relationships ” (p. 14).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ A transformational perspective is built upon two foundations:
      • a capacity to envision conflict positively, as a natural phenomenon that creates potential for constructive growth, and
      • a willingness to respond in ways that maximize this potential for positive change” (p. 15).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ A transformational approach recognizes that conflict is a normal and continuous dynamic within human relationships” (p. 15).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ A transformational approach seeks to understand the particular episode of conflict not in isolation, but as embedded in the greater pattern” (p. 16).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “… rather than seeing conflict as a threat, we can understand it as providing opportunities to grow and to increase understanding of ourselves, of others, of our social structures” (p. 18).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ Rather than seeing peace as a static ‘end-state,’ conflict transformation views peace as a continuously evolving and developing quality of relationship” (p. 20).

    • © 2012 Rey Ty (p. 33) Conflict Resolution Conflict Transformation The focus Content-centered Relation-ship-centered
    • © 2012 Rey Ty (p. 33) Conflict Resolution Conflict Transformation The purpose To achieve an agreement & solution to the presenting problem creating the crisis. To promote constructive change processes, inclusive of, but not limited to, immediate solutions.
    • © 2012 Rey Ty (p. 33) Conflict Resolution Conflict Transformation The develop-ment of the process It is embedded & built around the immediacy of the relationship where the symptoms of disruptions appear. It envisions the presenting problem as an opportunity for response to symptoms & engagement of systems within which relationships are embedded.
    • © 2012 Rey Ty (p. 33) Conflict Resolution Conflict Transformation Time frame The horizon is short-term relief to pain, anxiety, & difficulties. The horizon for change is mid- to long-term & is intentionally crisis-responsive rather than crisis-driven.
    • (p. 33) Conflict Resolution Conflict Transformation View of conflict It envisions the need to de-escalate conflict processes. It envisions conflict as an ecology that is relationally dynamic with ebb (conflict de-escalation to pursue constructive change) & flow (conflict escalation to pursue constructive change).
    • p. 35 © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “… the immediacy of the presenting issues, and the energy released as people contend over these issues, defined the ‘episodic’ expression of the conflict ” (p. 36).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “This approach goes beyond negotiating solutions and builds toward something new” (p. 38).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ Transformation requires us to reflect on multiple levels and types of change processes, rather than addressing ourselves only to a single operational solution” (p. 38).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ Such a framework emphasizes the challenge of how to end something not desired and how to build something that is desired” (p. 39).

    • p. 42 © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ The circle cautions us at each step: going forward too quickly may not be wise. Going backward may create more innovative ways forward. And coming down may create opportunities to build in wholly new ways” (p. 43).
      © 2012 Rey Ty
    • Conflict Transformation
      • “ At every step, circular thinking makes a practical appeal: Look. See. Adapt. It reminds us that change, like life, is never static. This is the circle portion of a dynamic process-structure” (p. 43).
