Perceived conflict is the awareness by one or more parties of the existence of a condition that create opportunities for conflict to arise and felt conflict is the emotional involvement in a conflict that creates anxiety, tenseness, frustration, or hostility. The third stage is intentions, which is to intervene between people’s perceptions and emotions and their over behavior. They are decisions to act in a given…
