Assertive Conflict Resolution!


On Monday, December 12th, Dr Theron Parsons IV came to talk about Conflict Resolution that doesn’t leave a party getting arrested.angry-grandma

Some terminology that was learned:

  1. In passive strategies, you communicate in a way that protects the other person’s interests at the expense of yours.
  2. Aggressive strategies represent the other extreme where you communicate in a way that protects your interests at the expense of the other person’s.
  3. Assertive communication strategies lie in the middle. These strategies depend on approaches that protect the interests of both parties in the communication – yours and the other person’s.

Communication is key to assertive communication. Instead of saying, “Pick up your mess!” Try letting them know you don’t appreciate the mess by asking them, “Can you pick pick up this mess?”  If they say no then you have the right to ask why. If they just don’t want to pick up after themselves, that would be a good time to bring in some help by having a mediation with your RA and roommate.


Dr. Strange Movie


After seeing the movie Dr. Strange, we talked about some of the real-world lessons that can be learned from the movie. One lesson is that being afraid to fail can keep you from accomplishing your true potential. So, even if you don’t think you can succeed, you could still try. This doesn’t mean you should do extremely dangerous tasks. Another lesson is just because you can do something, it doesn’t mean that you should.


Faces of the Divine


On Saturday, November 19th, UWP had its beautiful fall choir concert. Faces of the Divine was presented by UW-Platteville’s Department of Performing and Visual Arts. UWP’s Chamber Choir and University Singers presented works by Albrechtsberger, Hagenberg, Kirchner, Brahms, Scarlatti, Esenvalds, and Debussy. The songs were a mix of emotionally filled songs such as Famine Song, which is about people starving and praying for rain. Then there was also happy songs like Wanna Baraka and Pure Imagination from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Thanks for coming!
