The What of Challenging Conversations

August 16, 2022 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm
Ryan Chevalier

Topics we find challenging to discuss can include behaviors we find difficult, concerns about a child’s development, family relationships, and family well-being. What these topics have in common is they can make us uncomfortable. Come explore why these topics are hard not only for us but also for families, colleagues, and partners. Learn how we can use perspective-taking to promote productive and collaborative conversations about challenging topics.

This webinar is a part of the Navigating Challenging Conversations: Why, What, and How webinar series. Challenging conversations are an inevitable part of building trusting relationships with families, colleagues, and partners. While these conversations can be uncomfortable, they are also opportunities to strengthen our relationships. In this workshop series, we will explore how racism, culture, and bias may affect when and how we experience conversations as challenging. We will practice applying a strengths-based approach to effectively engage in challenging conversations.
