Ahmad and Ali, two students were defending each other regarding a cafeteria confrontation. Ahmad told the teacher that, “Ali called me a stupid guy when I accidently hit his tray with my shoulder after a sudden push during the bottlenecking at the counter”. Ali said that Ahmad hit him intentionally and wanted to spoil his food. Chilled drinks spilled over the burger and rice causing a mess in Ali’s tray. This caused him to call Ahmad a stupid guy. Ahmad yelled at Ali, “Who are you to call me a Stupid guy?” and this generated a fight.

important thing hand out mai all strategies nai hain so must listen lecture no 111 renaming lec mai discuss hain
i think the most appropriate stretgy is confrontation and problen solving leading to win-win.
as in confrontation both will tell what happened and the true sorce of conflict will be revealed and it can be then resolved accordingly.
both sides will be given a chance to tell their side of story to arrive at a collaborative solution to conflict.
what you guys say about it?
why not go for cognitive restructuring?
ya but give some logical argues such as????? infact am too thinking about it ..
cognitive restructuring is appropriate for aggressive personalities .its change the way someone think but they already involve their teacher so might be appeal to third party is also appropriate
ya too agree with sAima Umaar....
In fact Im li'll bit confuse among both ov them ist I wrote on third party appeal but now I change its as third party is already involved yar .....but I donE on Cognitive restructuring as such type of behaviors really need restructured otherwise this 'll be escalated in future ...Ammmm I think I givE u A hugE solution guyS... ... Isn't like that? ... ...
so tell what is appropriate?
cognitive cant be because how some one can found a positive thing in the act of mess his/her meals????? n how 1 can found a positive aspect in other aggressive calling so this opt is not fit
dear u point out on mine choosing communication point that these tow boys are aggressive so cant resolve through communication as they already did it but failed in communication..... so like this for win win situation cooperation and collaboration is require and when both are aggressive and not communicate well then how they will deal with win win strategy...... if win win can be then communication also with negotiation think about that.......
n dear i think our teacher give us solution gdb in gdb question because if win win or cognitive will apply then gdb que teacher interpreting part not necessary.......... so i think third party is rite opt......
In cognitive restructuring u try to convert the negative aspects into positive impacts...although they have involved their teacher in it nw he can change the negative aspects into positive one through cognitive means...3rd party strategy would be appropriate if they both were thinking to involve any 3rd person
