Depolarization Within Workshop, description from the Braver Angels website:
What is a Depolarizing Within Workshop?
The Depolarizing Within Workshop is designed to foster skills to help you lessen the effects of polarization when you encounter them in your political conversations. Note that by “polarization,” we are not referring to healthy disagreements over issues or philosophy. We are talking about how we regard and talk about large groups of ordinary people on the other side of the political aisle.
Who Can Attend? Anyone interested in examining their own inner polarization and learning strategies to disagree without condemning or ridiculing others.
To teach participants:
* How to be critical without demonizing, dismissing or stereotyping large swaths of the population.
* How to be more aware of their own “inner polarizer.”
* Strategies for intervening constructively in social conversations with like-minded peers when these conversations veer into contempt and ridicule for people who hold other political views.
Workshop Fee: Donations to Braver Angels accepted.
An introductory sample of concepts and information to be covered in the full 3-hour workshop can be found watching the Braver Angel video presentation on the WWFOR website, from WWFOR’s 2021 Spring Assembly.
