Satterlee, Anita G. (2002). Conflict Resolution Strategies for the Adult Higher Education Student. U.S. Pennsylvania.
Unlike students in the traditional age ranges, adult students have multiple roles they must fulfill, such as parent, spouse, child, student and worker. The potential for conflict in any of these roles is real, and the conflict must be resolved in a timely manner so that the student can put time, energy and effort into his or her multiple roles. This paper proposes methods of conflict resolution that can assist the student in the resolution process.
