What is a Skills Workshop?
In our current polarized political environment, many people avoid or dread political conversations with friends or family members whose politics differ from their own. They worry, rightly so, that any attempts at political discussions will devolve into arguments and acrimony, and result in hurt feelings or anger.
Better Angels Skills Workshops teach skills for having respectful conversations that clarify differences, search for common ground, and affirm the importance of the relationship. They also give participants a safe environment to practice those skills.
In addition to the standard skills workshop, Better Angels also holds special skills workshops: one designed especially for Reds, and the other designed for Blues.
Skills workshops are approximately 2 ½ hours long.
