Blending art therapy and narrative techniques, the Conflict Analysis Battery prompts test takers to become comfortable with their own story, identifying personal behavioral patterns through creative exploration. Test takers complete ten tasks, each corresponding to one of the six emotions of conflict resolution process. This information is automatically piped to a template that associates the drawing and story with the relevant stage. Through this experience, test takers come to identify the pattern repeated in their life, accepting responsibility for the repetition, and identifying corrective changes that they are prepared to make.
While art therapy and narrative therapy have proven therapeutically useful, inspiring increased self-esteem, the Conflict Analysis Battery moves beyond these traditional models, offering tools that trigger insight and behavior modification.
It is true that storytelling reveals meaning without committing the error of defining it, that it brings about consent and reconciliation with things as they really are, and that we may even trust it to contain eventually by implication that last word which we expect from the Day of Judgment. – Hannah Arendt
