Conflict Dynamics Profile®
Conflict Dynamics Profile®, an assessment instrument measuring conflict behaviors, is an excellent resource to increase self-awareness and improve conflict management skills. The CDP is unlike any other assessment tool in that it focuses specifically on conflict behaviors rather than styles. Backed by sound psychometrics and solid evidence of reliability and validity, it helps individuals understand how they respond to conflict, what triggers can escalate conflict, and how to manage conflict more effectively.
The CDP is a “self-report”
The CDP looks at how you view yourself. It provides a simple way of helping you understand more about how you respond to conflict, both behaviorally and emotionally. Based on the CDP assessments, Certified Administrators offer insightful feedback and tips to clients to help improve responses before, during and after conflict.
The CDP is action-oriented
The instrument emphasizes an action-oriented approach, which leads to real improvement. In addition to feedback on 15 scales, the CDP has a unique “hot buttons” section which identifies the emotional triggers that negatively impact relationships. A Development Guide provides information and recommendations for coping with conflict and building strong interpersonal relationships.
Certified Administrators of the CDP
Individual feedback is an essential part of the CDP process. Each person’s individual results are delivered by a trained practitioner and include both explanation of the instrument and dialogue about the results. Since this feedback session is so important to the value of the instrument, CDP requires that the CDP be administered only by certified professionals.
Conflict Management Partners are trained and qualified Certified Administrators of the CDP.
