High Conflict

In this session, we identify the way that conflict is rooted in blame and shame strategies. We examine the power of particular listening strategies like “looping for understanding” as a means of dialing down the conflicts that we encounter in media, the workplace, family and community.

What is high conflict and what forces perpetuate it? How does it damage individuals and communities? What can people do about it?

Courageous Conversations are lively facilitated discussions where we activate critical thinking, listening, and self-expression skills by talking about social media, news stories, memes, social influencers, and more. We are thrilled to be partnering with Cortico, a social media listening platform that brings people together for small-group conversations around their lived experiences. Through a powerful combination of AI and human listening, we aim to surface community voices into public dialogue that showcases and strengthens media literacy competencies essential for citizenship.
