Interpersonal Conflict Analyses  
OBJECTIVES:

This is a series of analysis papers that you will complete throughout the semester using the material from each module. 
Choose one person with whom you have experienced conflict in the past. Use this same person/conflict for each of the four papers instead of writing about different conflicts with different people for each paper. This allows you to thoroughly analyze the situation by the end of the semester. 
Write about the situation using various course material as a “lens” to analyze the conflict. 
Use the questions provided as prompts to analyze the situation, but do not include the questions in your paper.  Use essay format to answer the questions. 

Guidelines: All papers should be at least TWO FULL PAGES but no more than five pages and have a clear intro, body, and conclusion in APA format. Be sure to spell-check and also check for sentence structure issues and grammar usage before you submit the paper.
