The D.E.S.C. Method of Conflict Resolution

D = Describe what happened. “You said such and such. I did this and you did that…”

E = Explain how this made you feel. “When you did this I felt hurt.” “When you said

This to me I was sad (angry, hurt, uncomfortable…)

S = Share what you would like to have happen (in the future)


C = Compromise by stating what you will do as a result of this newer way.

Example: “If in the future you would let me finish talking without interrupting me, then I will ask you for your input as well.”
