In conversations today, with 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 while reviewing skills we can use everyday - such as reframing resistance, listening deeply, and navigating triggers - to remain "in conversation." Led by Beth Yohe, Executive Director of The Conflict Center. Please join us on Zoom 5 - 10 minutes early to resolve any technical issues. The Zoom link will be emailed to you approximately 24 hours prior to the workshop. Register for any or all of the Conflict Resolution Month programs and you’ll receive an email with information on picking up your copy of this year’s featured title, ‘We Need To Talk’ by Celeste Headlee. A limited number of copies are available, while supplies last.
