Join a Confab Call on Brain Science in D&D THIS Thursday!

As we announced last month, NCDD is hosting another one of our ever-popular Confab Calls this Thursday, October 15th from 2 – 3pm Eastern.  This call is titled Planning from the Inside Out: How Brain Science Supports Constructive Dialogue and Deliberation and will feature the insights of two of our long-time NCDD members on how lessons from brain science can help us plan D&D processes that use emotions skillfully to help groups find common ground while helping us as practitioners be better prepared to play our roles.

Make sure you register today to save your spot!

Our presenters, Mary V. Gelinas of Gelinas James, Inc. and Susan Stuart Clark of Common Knowledge, both apply the principles and teachings of brain science regularly as part of their D&D practices, and in this interactive discussion, they will share how a better understanding of key brain science topics can help us understand what’s going on “in our heads” when we participate in public meetings so that we can design better processes. The call will cover:

  • Triune brain theory;
  • What emotions are, along with why and how they get evoked in meetings;
  • Some key lessons from brain science for designing and conducting effective group processes;
  • How brain science can increase our ability to be instruments of change

Mary and Susan will share examples of the brain science they use in their work to provide a starting point for call participants to ask questions and share their own insights and experiences, so come with your questions and stories!

This Confab Call promises to be both interesting and highly applicable, so you don’t want to miss it! Make sure to register today, and invite a friend who might be interested! We look forward to talking with you all on Thursday!
