Mrs. Doutfire Conflict Management

by Aimee DuBois

In this clip, from the film "Mrs Doubtfire", viewers witness an argument between Miranda and Daniel. The couple both use destructive conflict management techniques. Specifically, they instill the use of kitchensinking (bringing up several issues at once) and critiquing (blame and judgement). This clip also illustrates a concept called "rekeying" in which we change the emotional tone of a conversation.
