At the core of many of today’s most complex social problems is a breakdown in relationships that leads to mistrust, gridlock, and fractured communities. Our method, Reflective Structured Dialogue, addresses the heart of this breakdown: we work to shift relationships, building the communication skills and trust needed to make action possible and collaboration sustainable. Reflective Structured Dialogue helps participants engage in constructive, often groundbreaking conversations that can restore trust and lay the foundation for collaborative action.

Public Conversations provides workshops in facilitation, dialogue and communication to equip people in this field to communicate more effectively. In addition to our flagship workshop (Power of Dialogue), Public Conversations is offering three new workshops this fall that delve deeper into specific components of our work. To learn more about Public Conversations, find more information on our workshops and continuing education opportunities, and register for our workshops, please visit our website. All of the workshops listed will take place in the Greater Boston area.

Inside Out: Leading from a Connected Place (Oct. 2, 8:30AM – 5:00PM)

Learn how to harness a deep understanding of your sub-personality “parts” and essential “self” to communicate with calmness, curiosity and compassion. This is a specialty workshop combining the best of Public Conversations’ and Internal Family Systems’ approaches to constructive communication across difference.

Power of Dialogue: Constructive Conversations on Divisive Issues (Oct. 22-24, 8:30AM -5:00PM)

Public Conversations’ flagship workshop, the Power of Dialogue is a highly interactive, widely applicable workshop for anyone interested in transforming conflicted conversations – among a working team, in a town hall, on a college campus, and beyond. Participants will build and expand their facilitation skills to create conversations that foster mutual understanding between groups and individuals divided by differences.

The Power of Stories: Moving Beyond “Them and Us” (Dec. 3, 8:30AM – 5:00PM)

Stories are how we make sense of the world. Stories can connect people or – when it’s about “us” vs. “them,” – drive people apart. Learn how to integrate the practice of storytelling and deep listening into facilitated dialogues, classrooms, meetings, and personal relationships. Through stories, we hear and are heard.

Becoming the Communicator You Want to Be (Dec. 10-12, 8:30AM – 5:00PM)

Have relationships that feel stuck? Want to make a dreaded conversation feel hopeful? In this workshop, participants will learn how to reflect, listen, speak, and inquire in ways that help them understand themselves and one another more deeply and communicate more effectively.

About Public Conversations: The Public Conversations Project fosters constructive conversation where there is conflict driven by differences in identity, beliefs, and values. We work locally, nationally, and globally to provide organizations, institutions, and communities dialogue facilitation, training, consultation, and coaching to discover new possibilities for coexistence and collaboration.
