  • Asking more than, «How did that make you feel?»: The Insight approach to feeling and valuing in conflict

    By Marnie Jull

    This article addresses how a practitioner can help to dissipate interpersonal conflict by recognizing and responding to feelings. Using conceptual resources from the Insight approach, the article proposes that reflexive inquiry into feelings as indicative of valuing can generate more expansive possibilities in transforming conflict. A case study of an intervention into workplace conflict explores how asking about feelings can elicit reflexive curiosity, rather than defensiveness, when a practitioner’s questions focus on discerning significance registered in a party’s felt response. The article’s autoethographic method indicates practical strategies as well as theoretical supports to analyze and respond to interpersonal conflict.

  • Change through Curiosity in the Insight Approach to Conflict

    By Megan Price

    Conflict behavior, as explained by the Insight approach, is the function of a decision to defend against a valuing of threat. However, defending against threat isn’t simply a choice, but a product of the biology of survival. This essay explores the psychological effects of threat, as well as their antidote: curiosity, showing that curiosity targeted toward the interiority of decision making in conflict can generate both a feeling of being understood and a self-awareness that sets the stage for new, transformative possibilities.
