The Conflict Cycle™ Paradigm

The Conflict Cycle™ is LSCI’s major paradigm for understanding the dynamics of escalating power struggles between adults and children.  On the surface, the Conflict Cycle appears simple.  Yet, its underlying concepts are complex and each individual component is important to fully comprehend in order for adults to understand how to prevent and de-escalate conflicts with kids.

Through the Conflict Cycle Paradigm training, participants will discover:

  • The underlying dynamics of conflicts between adults and young people
  • How to prevent power struggles that lead to explosive conflicts
  • How strong positive relationships between adults and kids can bring about behavioral changes

Turning Down the Heat: Managing Conflict in the Classroom

Many teachers become irritated by the behavior of select, challenging students. This is to be expected. Few teachers are trained to understand and acknowledge these normal counter-aggressive feelings. Problems develop when competent teachers stay angry at a student. When a conflict develops, teachers are less likely to perceive accurately, think clearly, and reason coherently. Though competent teachers rarely initiate conflicts with students, they often keep them alive through their unintended, counter-productive reactions.

This 2-hour, video-based workshop documents the most common reasons that teachers become counter-aggressive with select students and offers dozens of targeted intervention skills to more effectively manage conflict in the classroom. Grounded in neuroscience and trauma-informed approaches, this unique training leads to powerful insights that will change the way you think and behave when you are angry.
