About this Event
36 Ochre Point Ave, Newport , RI 02840#holidays
Worried Uncle Ned is going to talk conspiracy theories after two glasses of red wine at the family holiday celebration? Or that you’re second cousin once removed is going to corner you to discuss both the 2020 elections and recent midterms? The holidays can be a stressful time, especially when there are landmines of touchy political topics separating family and friends on opposing sides of the red-blue divide.
Join Dr. Jim Ludes and Katie Langford for a roundtable discussion on approaches to uncomfortable conversations about complex topics that elicit strong emotions and opinions. The discussion will elucidate the components of difficult conversations and unpack the practicality of expert advice in such situations.
Roundtable discussions are open to students, faculty and staff at Salve Regina University. The Pell Center will provide a free lunch. Space is limited. Please RSVP to email@example.com.
