In conversations about politics today, a range of issues like gun control, or discussions of white
privilege and other forms of oppression, have you ever wanted to "unfriend" people? As core
perspectives and experiences divide us as a country, it is even more important to be able to stay
in conversation with people and to engage in civil dialogue, even if they are contentious
interactions. This interactive session from The Conflict Center will focus on a variety of ways
that we "unfriend" people and review facilitation skills we can use everyday such as reframing
resistance, listening deeply, and navigating triggers to stay "in conversation" instead.
