We have 40 years of relationship experience between the two of us. We’ve seen clients all over the world, and experienced many different relationship conflicts (including our own).
Because of this experience, both professional and personal, we built Creative Conflict Resolutions on a foundation made up of some very key ingredients. Instead of going into a long history about how we started, we’ll share with you what we’re about and what we aim to help you with.
Ingredient One: Any relationship is a contract. Two individuals promise to help each other satisfy their needs. Thus, to support healthier relationships, we need to help people find new ways to meet their personal needs in ways that will serve them and others in the long term.
Ingredient Two: Human beings need interpersonal conflict in order to grow. Not everyone will tell you this. We fight in order to individualize and keep learning other lessons, but also to get the other person’s attention. It is through relationships that people either rise to the most creative possibilities, or fall into the immobilizing trap of fear and stop growing. Thus, our task at Creative Conflicts is to teach you to develop nurturing, learning experiences through which you can grow.
Ingredient 3: Hate and anger poison your life, even if the person you hate “deserves it.”
You can even physically harm yourself by harboring that negativity. So, learning to deal with conflict can literally save your life. We aim to help people manage their negative emotions about the world and teach them how to handle the world in a confident, independent and calm way.
What we do not do:
Taking sides in any confrontation; Deciding who is right or who is wrong; Adjudicating blame; Rejecting people because their way of expressing pain is aggression.
What do we do?
The project of Creative Conflict Resolutions now is to find and offer you the tools which would transform any relationship from a damaged, unhappy state, into one of reciprocal cooperation.
There is only room for mutual help, understanding, and respect. You can learn to transform any relationship into acceptance, recognition and love.
