Learn how to resolve conflicts in a peaceful way that strengthens relationships.

In this class, you will learn how to resolve conflicts and disagreements with friends and family using authentic dialogue. In an authentic dialogue, people listen deeply in order to understand one another better and search for win-win solutions.

You will learn:

1. The difference between an authentic dialogue, a discussion, and a debate.

2. The three foundational skills of authentic dialogue.

  • Empathetic listening
  • Empathetic questioning
  • Tolerance

3. How to initiate and engage in an authentic dialogue to resolve a conflict.

Dr. Sundiata Soon-Jahta will facilitate a discussion using a slide show presentation for students to follow along with while asking and answering questions throughout the presentation to ensure comprehension and keep the class engaging.

This class also includes a pop-up quiz game called "No. More. Arguments. The Game" where Dr. Sundiata will give the students a conflict scenario and ask them to identify if it's an authentic dialogue, a debate, or a discussion.
