How to Facilitate Group Empathy With Communologue

Fri 4:00pm - 4:50pm

Venue: Convo 12


Whether it's a group of family members or co-workers, there is usually one who is verbose and another who is quiet. The power-over mentality minimizes those who feel invisible and misunderstood. Based on a variation of the dialogue model, Communologue is a communication technique. Dialogue is different from persuasion, discussion or debate. Instead it's a speaker/listener skill between two people in which they create emotional safety. In the same way, Communologue involves three or more in which all are heard, validated, and undersood. You'll get a how-to demonstration with an impromptu volunteer group. Addressing one issue at a time, you'll learn the basics of facilitating to create group empathy.
