Description

Sociopolitical discussions can prove challenging for counselors. While we seek to bridge differences, we can be at a loss when faced with difficult interactions or confrontations. This session presents approaches for facilitating dialogues that invite disagreement while promoting cultural understanding, trust, and empathy. By deconstructing political discourses, this session will present conflict reconciliation approaches to guide attendees toward awareness and strategies for hosting conversations.

  • Participants will deconstruct dominant discourses that impede effective facilitation of conversations involving charged topics.
  • Participants will be introduced to approaches that promote understanding, trust, and empathy in potentially conflictual conversations.
  • Participants will develop strategies for hosting such conversations that can be incorporated into their own settings.
