Workshop: Healthier Political Conversations

Join Moishe House East Bay to hone your tools just in time for your family's Thanksgiving table.

Arrival between 2:30 and 2:45 pm
Workshop content begins at 3 pm sharp, ends at 5 pm

Political conversations are the worst; why? Cognitive scientists are finding underlying reasons why our political conversations fail. This is a workshop: describe your difficult conversations, bring your skills (NVC, mediation, therapy...), listen just a bit to recent cognitive science findings about how liberals and conservatives fail to see each other, and go home prepared to have more deeply connected political conversations.
