Don’t let politics ruin your Thanksgiving and Holidays!
Better Angels Communication Skills Workshop: How to Talk Across the Political Divide
What is it? There's a lot of stress these days among family members and friends who are divided politically, and the current polarized public conversation doesn’t help. Please join us for a Better Angels Communication Skills Workshop to learn skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship.
After a presentation, you will have an opportunity to practice conversation skills. You will practice in a pair with someone of your same political persuasion—red or blue. “Reds” lean conservative and tend to vote Republican. “Blues” lean liberal and tend to vote Democratic. If you fall somewhere in the middle, you can choose a side for purposes of practicing the skills.
Who can come? Anyone interested in having better conversations with people on the other side of the political aisle.
When? We are offering two workshops this fall that will each cover the same material: Tuesday, Nov. 12, 6:30-9pm and Friday, Dec. 6, 6:30-9pm
