This article explores and discusses specific dysfunctional and destructive conflict resolution patterns. The problem is focused on seven conflicts, consisting of four kinships and three socio-political cases after direct regional elections. This research was conducted qualitatively, using the structural-functionalism paradigm of Dahrendorf. Field data consists of narrative texts on a series of events based on personal experience. These data are in the form of verbatim transcripts to reduce bias through comparisons between subjects and are analyzed based on the approach of Ricoeur's hermeneutic circles. The study found alignment, determinants, archetypes of reconciliation, fundamental points, and prerequisites for resolution. Alignment, the study's conclusion, is a mechanism for self-discovery in conflict through different recoveries. The differentiation of authority is restored through alignment, and the structure is more functional.
