Respecting the Dignity of Others as a Means to Resolve Conflict

Check out this video by Dr. Donna Hicks.  A friend sent this to me recently, and I wanted to share it here.

I think it is particularly relevant when working in environments or situations where conflict is often present, but rarely addressed.

I have also attached a summary of Dr. Hick’s dignity model for your exploration and reflection.

Be Kind Always

I'm a Social Justice Educator and Aspiring Humanitarian who is interested in conflict resolution, improving intergroup relations, and building more equitable and inclusive communities. "Notes from an Aspiring Humanitarian" is my blog, where I write about issues of diversity, inclusion, equity, and social justice. By exploring social identities through written word, film & video, and other forms of media, I hope to continue to expand and enrich conversations about social issues that face our society, and to find ways to take social action while encouraging others to do so as well in their own ways.

    Relando, thank you for sharing this powerful video. Although I would prefer to simply reblog your post on Voices from the Margins with your permission, I can’t see how I can easily do so. So instead, I will share the video with brief introductory remarks along a link to your blog.
