Proflict Not Conflict

Call me an idealist but I wonder sometimes if the word proflict (as it applies to interpersonal conflict) was used rather than conflict  if we would see our arguments, fights, etc.  as more positive. From wherever the negative connotations of conflict derived it has been perpetrated over time, and many  of us have fears and challenges with the idea of viewing conflict as an opportunity to have conciliatory and normal conversation to resolve our differences. Power, a need to be right and win, and strongly held views and emotions appear to be some of the factors militating against this perspective.

How might you approach a conflict in positive ways?
