– Personal Application Paper
The purpose of this Personal Application Paper is for you to pay attention to yourself and how you use (or don’t use) this knowledge and skills in your life. And what
you would like to do differently or better.
Reflect on your behavior, reactions and responses when in a conflict or difficult situation with another. This can be at work, or in your personal like. It is often
good to think of a particular situation you were in. What happened? How did it effect you? What were you thinking? What did you do? How was the outcome? What would
you do the next time something like this happened? Look at it from a different perspective (the perspective of the person you are in this situation with). This
exercise will help you to become skilled in “perspective taking’ or “re-framing.” Try to look at this experience and describe it from different perspectives. For
example, how did other participants view the situation and what did it mean to them? What would a neutral observer have seen and heard? Now that you are revisiting
this, do you see the situation differently? Look beneath the surface and try to explain why the people involved (especially you) behaved as they did.
· The length of paper should be 2 or 3 pages.
