The What of Challenging Conversations

August 18 @ 10:00 am - 10:30 am PDT


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 what we can do to promote productive and collaborative conversations about challenging topics.

This workshop is part of the larger Navigating Challenging Conversations: What, Why, and How 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 for self-reflection and growth. In this workshop series, we explore how racism, culture, and bias may affect when and how we experience conversations as challenging. We practice applying a strengths-based approach to effectively engage in challenging conversations.
