Skills for Bridging the Divide Workshop with Braver Angels

USC Center for the Political Future

Location: Online

The Center for the Political Future is partnering with Braver Angels for this month’s Listen In Session. 

Learn skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. This 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 these conversations 
Motivates you to have these conversations with people in your social network 
You will practice listening and speaking skills in a pair with someone of your own 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.
