The Nature of Human Conflicts

Running head: Nature of human conflict Queston1 Laws are put down for the purpose of controlling crimes in every society. These laws are always in conflict with those beings that go against its terms. The origin of this conflicts is ones behavior hence behaviorist study. An individual’s behavior can be traced back from his social units and these units include family, the church and also peer. Character is shaped by these structures to help in individuals well being failure to imposition of values leads to conflicts with the criminal system. Another factor that brings conflicts is ones belief about something or his environment. People hold different beliefs about their environment, sometimes this brings about conflict if at all laws put across do not acknowledge ones interests. From this people tend to believe that laws are only made for the interest of that in power and not for the interest of the whole society (Kalinich, 2000, p. 35). Conflicts can also emanate from our genetic composition. These involves our reasoning and mental capacity. Every individual has a unique genes passed from one generation to another. The ability of ones understanding of the law depends on his brain capacity whether he is of sound mind or not (Kalinich, 2000, p. 38).
There are different managerial typologies that are used to describe police administrators approach to conflict resolution one being scientific management. Here the police come up with a defined method of handling different criminal charges. in addition to that the judicial criminal system tries to come up with ways in which the police can carry out their duties without disruption to ensure efficiency (Kalinich, 2000, p. 102).
The second managerial approach is process approach. These are different processes take place in a criminal justice agency to ensure resolution of conflicts. The police ensure discipline at all cost. Work is divided on line of specialization and directions are offered from authority in place. Another managerial typology focuses on human needs. It is important to notice that every individual ha s different needs. The most important ones are basic needs also known as physiological needs. These needs are well described by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs (Kalinich, 2000, p. 390).
