This paper deconstructs the phenomenon of interpersonal conflict as a significant barrier to achieve desirable practice within the context of a single reflected experience shared by a practitioner within a guided reflection relationship. Based on understanding the key dynamics of intrapersonal and interpersonal conflict, more effective ways of managing conflict in order to accomplish therapeutic intent can be constructed towards becoming more effective in future situations.
