Having Difficult Conversations - Liverpool Guild of Students

Tuesday 13 November 15.00 – 17.00

McAusland Room, University of Liverpool Guild Of Students, 160 Mount Pleasant, Liverpool, L3 5TR

Debate is an important part of student and political life. However, often we focus too much on winning the argument, committing to our own point of view.

Instead let’s try a dialogue, where the atmosphere is more exploratory, participants can express uncertainties as well as deeply held beliefs, and participants are encouraged to listen, understand and gain insight.

The session will explore 3 different dialogue techniques that can be used when facilitating difficult discussions. We’ll be using controversial topics such as faith and sexuality, women’s rights and terrorism to explore how dialogue can be effective when having these difficult discussions.

Come along and find out why dialogue, not debate, is important in having difficult discussions.
