Program Description

Event Details

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.
