The Problem

The Problem contains maps for understanding the nature of conflict and the qualities of abuse and oppression.  These maps can help us better understand the circumstances we find ourselves in and can help us determine how fully we are addressing the problems.

  • Broken Maps: out of date, different territory, too simple or too complex, cognitive distortions
  • Conflict Aspects: resource, identity, process
  • Conflict Intensity: the interplay of ownership and divergent perspectives
  • Conflict Stages: strategy, event, quality
  • Abuse: kinds of definitions for different contexts - to condemn or to transform, in mutual or fiduciary relationships
  • Abuse: what allows for it? Opportunity, Permission, and Motivation
  • Systems of Oppression: dominance, privilege, secrecy, and anxiety.
  • No TrackBacks
