Communication Skills for Bridging the Political Divide Workshop

About this event

There can be a lot of stress among family members and friends who are divided politically, and polarizing public conversation doesn’t help.

In this workshop you will learn and practice skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. This free workshop does the following:

  • Provides knowledge about what it takes to have constructive, non-polarizing conversations between people who disagree politically
  • Gives you the chance to practice these skills to have non-polarizing conversations
  • Motivates you to have non-polarizing conversations with people in your social network

This is an in-person workshop only. No online e-course required. Participant guide provided.

See you there!
