    Applying conflict resolution and the ethical response cycle in daily life are two things that could potentially save people from having "missed connections".

    Provided that the involved parties are not under any duress of secondary psychosis, applying said tactics can be easy, and a whole lot quicker than giving each other some bullshit run around. Such pro-social behaviour eliminates the need for pretense, unknown factors/stressors (hurt feelings)/misunderstandings etc...

    Cooperative & meaningful -communication- is essential towards conflict resolution. Furthermore most all ethical responses. Given the opportunity, conflict resolution can help maintain and restore interpersonal and societal conflicts!

    For example:

    When Amanda Todd was stalked & socially assaulted by the information that her abuser obtained through stalking her. The most immediate reaction SHOULD have been: "Someone is abusing another person, and they are spreading their private information around. Therefore, we should help them, support them and befriend them, AND prosecute their tormenter." NOT: "Nobody hang around __________ because they are being tormented by some psychopath, and have been for the past couple years"...

    Unfortunately, due to group think and a host of other logical fallacies, the narrative that surrounded a young girl was that: "anyone who hung around her would be just as uncool". That narrative was too funny, too strong, too irresistible. Arguably it wasn't so much her tormenter that consumed her, it was the community of Port Coquitlam & Port Moody. Not only for dropping the ball on hardcore child exploitation, but as well, for letting such idiocy communally manifest the way it did, through lack of action. #bystandereffect

    Her parents MOVED TWICE! And still the "dipshits" in the community found a way to purvey her stolen personal info & media, against her! Which, effectively lynched out -a little girl- from society and life at large.

    For -years- she was "haunted"... by kids and shit-tards akin. Why? Because someone (her stalker) told them some super sensationalistic information. ...Hook, line and sinker, the entire community swallowed the trolls bait.

    Which is why, applying the ethical response cycle and conflict resolution tactics, can not only save everyone from huge mistakes, but misunderstandings and most of all conflict.

    Here are eight stages of the ethical response cycle: "Applying the Ethical Response Model" By: tracycw - Scribd * = added material

    1. Identification of the problem: considering the facts.
    2. Legal Aspects: are there any rules or policies to consider e.g. national laws?
    3. Professional / Personal Consideration: core values, codes of ethics, principles of professional practice, policies and guidelines.
    4. Ethical Principles: application of fundamental ethical beliefs including autonomy, beneficence, non-maleficence, justice and fidelity. These align with the Rules/Principle paradigm.
    5. Ethical Theories: application of philosophical ethics including rule-based, ends-based and care-based paradigms.
    6. Informed Inclination: application of professional expertise, experience, knowledge, disposition, values and morals.
    7. Judgment: these need to be based on a proven reasoning process, be justifiable and provide a foundation for a reliable ethical response.
    8. Action: this is an outcome of the judgment decision, the process must be documented.
    Utilizing an ethical response method and conflict resolution between her bullies (in Canada), could have prevented such potential from falling. However, such information (invaluable information) is not general knowledge... Personally, I believe that it is because such knowledge paves the way to dismissing core "philosophies/beliefs"? ...IMHO of course.

    Anyways here are six steps to conflict resolution: "Management Models for Resolving Conflict in the Workplace" By Melissa McDowell, Kim Coleman, Amy Raines, Wayne Seay, and Steve Sullivan

    1. Identify the problem.
    2. Propose several possible solutions.
    3. Determine the best solution.
    4. Implement the alternative.
    5. Continually evaluate the solution.
    If such things were talked about in media or even mentioned in films, music or culture... "Potential" wouldn't be nearly as threatened by suppression, oppression and confusion, as it is now.
