Conflict Resolution Strategies for the Adult Higher Education Student.
Satterlee, Anita G.
Educational credentials are used as a yardstick with which to measure the knowledge, skills, and abilities of adults, regardless of actual workplace abilities. With this pressure to earn a credential, adults are returning to higher education in vast numbers. Unlike students in traditional age ranges, adult students have multiple roles they must fulfill. The obligations of the roles of parent, spouse, child, and worker must be met in addition to those of student. The potential for conflict in any of the roles of the adult student is real, and the conflict must be resolved in a timely manner so that the student can put time, energy, and effort into his or her multiple roles. This paper proposes methods of conflict resolution drawn from the literature that can assist the adult student in the resolution process. (Contains 25 references.) (Author/SLD)
