Conflict Avoidance

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingEntry for encyclopedia/dictionary

Abstract

Although individuals frequently encounter provoking behaviors, they do not always confront the perpetrator and, when they do, they sometimes try to prevent the confrontation from escalating into a serious conflict. This entry illustrates how scholars describe the nature of conflict avoidance and what research shows as to the effects of conflict avoidance on conflict resolution, individual well-being, and relationships.
