Disengaging from Conflict Cycles
Long, Nicholas J.
Reclaiming Children and Youth, v23 n1 p33-37 Spr 2014
Youth in pain often show self-defeating and destructive patterns of behavior which should be seen as calls for help and positive support. Instead, deep-seated brain programs and cultural beliefs about discipline can trigger angry or avoidant behavior by adults who deal with these young people. This brief introduction to the Conflict Cycle highlights the dynamics of how caring adults can get caught in these self-defeating patterns and how to avoid them.
