The Little Book of Dialogue for Difficult Subjects : A Practical, Hands-On Guide

The Little Book of Dialogue for Difficult Subjects : A Practical, Hands-On Guide

Description

Here is a process for talking about tension-filled topics. Useful for families, small groups, businesses, and private and governmental organizations, now, more than ever, because we are divided by political party, race, religion, and region, dialogue is an essential tool. The word dialogue suffers from over-use, yet its practice is as transforming and as freshly hopeful as ever. Authors Schirch and Campt demonstrate dialogue's life and possibilities in this clear and absorbing manual: Dialogue allows people in conflict to listen to each other, affirm their common ground, and explore their differences in a safe environment. Chapters include: Defending Dialogue, Organizing a Dialogue Process, Moving from Dialogue to Action, Assessing Dialogue Effectiveness and more. Schirch has worked throughout the Southern hemisphere in peacebuilding projects. Campt has focused on racial and class reconciliation in American cities. Part of the Little Book of Justice and Peacebuilding Series.
