Families and Politics: How to Talk With Loved Ones on the "Other" Side
Family relationships are becoming casualties of our toxic political environment. Family members are having nasty political arguments, avoiding each other, and even cutting off lifetime relationships. If you want to preserve important family bonds while still being true to your values and political beliefs, this Better Angels workshop will offer you: - Insight into why family differences over politics are uniquely challenging; - Recognition of common roles that family members play in political conversations (for example, the Gladiator, the Defender, and the Sniper) - Strategies and skills for handling family political differences in a constructive way. Although the focus is on family relationships, you can apply the skills to any important relationship. You’ll laugh and have some fun in this workshop—it won’t be all serious. After all, we all come from quirky families.
