Managing Internal and External Conflict | Dr. Joan speaks with Kimberly Clark Part 4

What do we do when those in the military, who are meant to protect are unprotected? How do we deal with the internal and external conflict that comes with experiencing trauma? Managing internal and external conflict requires a delicate balance of self-reflection and effective communication. Internally, it involves understanding our own emotions, values, and needs, and finding healthy ways to address and resolve conflicts within ourselves. Externally, it requires open and respectful dialogue, active listening, and finding common ground with others involved in the conflict.
