Beyond Defensiveness: Having Difficult Conversations Without Getting Triggered

Our country is deeply divided. As we face crucial issues with the potential to impact millions of lives, we cannot afford increasing alienation. Sharon Strand Ellison will show us how making simple changes in voice tone, body language, phrasing and intention can defuse defensiveness, often instantly, even in high-conflict situations.

The skills participants learn can be used immediately, exponentially enhancing our conflict resolution and creative problem-solving abilities, at home and in community, as well as transforming antiquated methods of political debate on a national and global scale.
