Issues surrounding relationship skills can result from mismatches in self-awareness, self-management, and social awareness. Because of differences in the understanding of norms, social roles (e.g., age, gender, etc.) and unwritten rules about emotional displays, students and adults can misinterpret each other’s attempts to cooperate, share, and engage in collaborative problem solving. This can cause disagreement which can escalate into entrenched conflicts that overemphasize compliance rather than social-emotional growth, fairness, and the resolution of conflicts. As one of the five core competencies from CASEL, relationship skills is defined as the ability to establish and maintain healthy and rewarding bonds with diverse individuals and groups. As a member of your community, better understanding and developing your own relationship skills will help you communicate with others and better understand their needs and strengths, as well.
