Socialization is one of the most important processes in human life and as such, is an integral part of any society. It is a process through which a person acquires various social skills, which are of great help in playing the role of a student, friend, parent, worker, and, above all, a citizen of a society. Social skills are treated as the ability of the individual to optimally cope with himself, but also with his own environment. Like everything else in life, social skills can be learned and practiced in everyday life. There are a number of social skills that play a significant role in a person's functioning. Each of them has its own meaning and application in given situations throughout life. Specifically in this article, our focus will be on conflicts and conflict management. Conflict is a normal occurrence and is part of everyday life between people. It is a social factual situation in which at least two parties participate, pursuing different, incompatible goals or striving for the same goal, using different, incompatible means to achieve this. There is an opinion that conflicts, by themselves, are neither good nor bad, but the consequences that result from them can be good or bad. It mostly depends on the knowledge and the ability to manage conflict situations. When conflict is managed in an inappropriate way, it gives negative results, but when the necessary skills are used for a positive way of managing and dealing with conflicts, then it provides an opportunity to maintain personal and professional relationships, growth, and strengthen human relationships.
