Accept/ create acceptance of differences


How to resolve conflict.



One way is to imagine yourself in that person’s situation. Really take time to think through how you would feel if you were in that person’s shoes.

When you are dealing directly with this person, you have to go into the conversation empty handed—with no personal expectations or goal of fixing them.


When the other person begins to share, focus on the feelings and situations that you’ve experienced in the past that are similar. This will deepen your emotional insight into the other person’s plight.


If the other party is doing something that you don't agree with,
don’t take it as a personal affront or attack.

WHAT IS
EMOTION?
EMOTION
V.S.
FEELINGS
• Emotions can be considered more
complex than feelings.
• Feeling is a state of very basic human experience while emotions involve
complex experience.
• Dictionary defines emotion as a
strong feeling
,
but emotion is
too complex
to be explained so simply.
• According to Sadock & Sadock (2003), emotion is a complex feeling
state with psychic, somatic, and behavioral components.

All emotions involve some form of feeling;
you cannot experience an emotion
without first experiencing the feeling.
Not all your feelings turn into emotions
they may just simply remain just as feelings.

Social
Signals
Survival, Attention and Memory
Arousal and Motivation
Facial expressions that accompany emotions
send social signals of how you feel and
provide others social signals of what
you’re going to do.
Generally, facial expressions provide reasonably
good information about our emotional state.

Emotions signal you to evaluate a
situation in terms of your well-being.

Emotions affect attention and memory.

You remember situations that are
emotionally charged.

o Emotions prepare the body for some actions by putting
it in a state of arousal.
o There is a relationship between emotional arousal and
task-performance known as Yerkes-Dodson Law (Plotnik, 2005).

Feeling high anxiety causing high arousal could lead to poor
concentration and performance.
 With a good amount of arousal, as when you are in a race
and people are cheering you, your heightened emotion inspired
by the cheering crowd could push and motivate you to run faster.

QUALITIES OF EMOTION
EMOTION
1. Emotions are felt and expressed by facial expressions.
2. Emotions are less controllable
and may not respond to reason.
3. Emotions have an influence on many cognitive processes, such as making decisions, developing personal relationships, and selecting goals.
4. Some emotions are hard-wired in
the brain, making it more an innate
response.
