This article presents the conceptual framework of interpersonal conflict as an integration of the concept of 7C playfulness and positive psychotherapy. The conflict is based on M. Smith’s three-component attitude structure. The interpersonal conflict as a dynamic process occurring between at least two interrelated parties (individuals and / or groups), is described by cognitions, which make up the sphere of controversy (cognitive component); emotions covered by three possible ways of processing the key conflict (emotional component); behavioral patterns of ludic positions in balance or in their polar manifestations (behavioral component).
