In the article “Picturing the Heart of Conflict,” David Powlison illustrates a method that can be used as a counseling tool for examining a conflict. The diagram portrays the situational triggers, the offensive and defensive aspects of war-making and the cravings of the heart that drive anger and fear. In the article “The Slippery Slope,” Corlette Sande presents a cartoon-style teaching on the dynamics of interpersonal conflict and peacemaking. The diagrams lay out the “slippery slope” of conflict: On one side are “escape” responses, on the other side are “attack” responses and in the middle are “work-it-out” responses.
