week 1 Content Review: Difficult Dialogues

In this course, you are likely to engage in "difficult dialogues" with your classmates as you raise controversial issues and identify points of disagreement. It's important that you are prepared to engage in these kinds of discussions productively, both in the context of this course and for your future practice.

1. In your text, read the section on page 144 titled "Eight Ground Rules for Difficult Dialogues."

2. Think of a past experience in which you had the opportunity for a "difficult dialogue" with a friend or family member. Evaluate the process and outcome of that dialogue. How did it go? What was the result?

3. Write three or four paragraphs on what you did well during that experience, and what you might have done differently. Use concepts from your reading to think of at least two things you might have done that would have improved the outcome of that dialogue.
