Impediments 1 Running head: CONFLICT IMPEDIMENTS Conflict Impediments Bobby L. Harris Indiana Wesleyan University Plagiarism is considered cheating and applies to all forms of intellectual property. The Prentice Hall Reference Guide (2006) indicates “Plagiarism results when a writer fails to document a source so that the words and ideas of someone else are presented as the writer’s own work” (p. 292). According to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association (2001), “Each time you paraphrase another author (i.e., summarize a passage or rearrange the order of a sentence and change some of the words), you will need to credit the source in the text” (p. 349). Even when you use other people’s thoughts or concepts without crediting them as the source then you have stolen their intellectual work.

Impediments 2 Abstract An impediment is an obstacle or barrier that stands in our way and prevents us from resolving conflicts. There are many characteristics of conflict and each has their own barriers that must be overcome. In order to triumph over these obstacles we must first look at the causes as well as look at the steps to resolve the conflict.

Impediments 3 Conflict Impediments A meta-dispute (Coltri, 2004, p. 194) is caused when there is a dispute with the way a conflict is resolved. The longer the dispute goes unresolved the more disputes there will be. This will also make the relationship much more difficult and conflicted. In order to avoid a meta-dispute you must keep an open line of communication. Be open with one another and try to be understanding. Listen to the other person and know they are probably just as frustrated as you are. Acknowledge their frustration and explain to them and let them know you care. Sometimes a conflict can be completely avoided by showing the other person you’re willing to communicate, listen, and willing to work the problem out. Being open with the people you are dealing will show your true feelings and intentions.
