The Conflict Analysis Battery is didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic. It represents an intellectual as well as an emotional experience leading to self-discovery and personal growth. The battery is an emotional education that can be utilized as a brief, manual-driven psychodynamic psychotherapy.

It can benefit everybody in understanding psychology, one-self and to identify moral values totally independently from religions.
The Battery begins educating about behavior and then helps to learn about oneself. It generates insights and also provides directives in how to deliberately make changes to optimize one’s adjustment and decrease dysfunction and distress.
The assessment experience begins with an introductory essay that outlines the concepts of the unconscious as a conflict resolution process. It continues then with identifying one’s wellness diagnosis using a personality inventory, the Relational Modality Evaluation Scale (RMES), and then using the metaphor creation exercises, which help to construct continuity between one’s interpersonal and intra-psychic transactions. The inventory identifies your personality type and the set of exercises channels your creativity into an organized structure that integrates your personal experiences into the six-role pattern. The creativity tasks utilize drawing and writing to help you explore your pattern, documenting the consistent ways you engage with conflict. The tests identify the conflict resolution mechanism as consisting of six roles: stress, response, anxiety, defense, role reversal, and compromise guided by three formal operations to evolve a conflict to its resolution. Each test corresponds to a stage in the six-role process. Conflictual Memories identify the Stress experience. The Mask Test portrays the choice of Responses. What is hidden behind the mask identifies one’s Anxiety. The Animal Metaphor reveals one’s Defensive behaviors. The Dream Metaphor identifies the state of Role Reversal. The Short Story Metaphor reveals one’s choice of Compromise or Resolution. This creative format personalizes the objective format of the RMES, connecting emotional experiences with a wellness diagnosis, as the meaningful way of understanding yourself. Generating insights the experience guides you to map changes for optimal living. The information gathered is automatically piped into a summary grid, template that can be used to share your insights with other persons or counselors.
The assessment identifies a person’s diagnosis as a relational modality, which explains emotions and behaviors also any clinical symptoms psychodynamically as activities and passivities leading to reversals and it entails their correction by modifying the behaviors, managing one’s power. Improved power management eliminates symptoms. The test taker identifies the cause effect connection between behaviors and emotions and acquires a handle in making changes. The self-assessment thus is proven to be an educational, diagnostic and therapeutic experience.
For too long students’ emotional needs have been kept outside of the classroom. Through Conflict Analysis, we now have a safe, secure, and meaningful way for students to learn about themselves.
