In this study, the concept of simulation means an active imitation of activities taking place in the real world, and experimenting with them in a safe and non-threatening environment. The main purpose of the simulation is to provide the experience as close as possible to "what is happening in the real world". The advantage of using simulation lies in the ability to experiment and re-run the scenario, based on alternative approaches and strategies. Simulation enables students to develop and enrich their experience in dealing with specific situations while being exposed to conflict situations in a nonjudgmental environment.

The simulation is used in various fields, such as transportation, trainee pilots, medicine and courts. Using the simulation allows the participants to enrich their knowledge and experience while taking into account the safety element and costs.

One of the most important components of the simulation, in one side is the possibility of experiencing the scenario and on the other hand being part of it, in addition to the opportunity which given to the participants to conduct a discussion and express an opinion.

In this study, we examined two basic components of preservice teachers who had one set of 4-hour simulation workshop - without an earlier experience in simulation. The study included five groups of preservice teachers, various academic years, various academic professions, and various academic training institutions.

The research question is: How does the experience in a simulation workshop affect perception of the concept of conflict among preservice teachers?

The findings of the study indicated a significant satisfaction with (within) the participation in the workshop. The findings also show a positive and significant change in perception of the conflict concept in the majority of students after (following) the participation in the workshop.
