Film Analysis:
Select a film from the list below and prepare an assessment of how conflict is managed by the major characters in the film as well as suggestions that would help individuals portrayed in the film better understand and improve their response to conflict.
You may focus upon all the major relationships, a single relationship, or a combination of relationships, depending on what you deem most relevant. You should select the combination of the theories and/or perspectives that you find most useful for analysis of this conflict. I recommend that you focus upon three or four perspectives at most so you have time to discuss and apply the concepts in detail.
This project should be in essay form and between eight to ten pages in length, you must use a clear citation style when quoting from the textbooks.
