Relational modalities, as attitudes,
are modifiable by completing the entire conflict resolution
process, that is by outgrowing one’s relational limitations
through confronting one’s fears or anxieties. Pursuit
of complete conflict resolution and personal transformation
guided the four Oz companions to encounter the Wizard of Oz
who challenged them to kill the Wicked Witch of The West.
To acquire the desired
qualities of courage, a heart, a brain and going back home the
companions had to pursue a new six-role journey. Along this
journey they transformed the Stress of their needs, to a Response,
their new adventure. They overcame their fears, (Anxiety), by
taking risks, and thus defeating the Wicked Witch, (Defense).
Empowered by this victory, they were able to confront Oz, demystify
his identity and reverse roles with him, (Reversal). Oz departed
from the Emerald City and the companions succeeded him by assuming
his roles of leadership (Compromise).
Along this six-role-process
our heroes were able to resolve their conflicts by transforming
oppression to mastery, antagonism to cooperation and alienation
to mutual respect.
