Keeping an Open Mind and Heart at TUHH: Communicating Effectively in Confrontational Times

Wars, climate change, AI - there is currently no shortage of topics that get people worried. When people feel threatened, openness and tolerance diminish; conspiracy theories are nurtured in spaces of fear, and conflicts, xenophobia, and other forms of discrimination increase.

What can be done to counter hate speech? What options are there for responding to discriminatory behavior? How can I continue to respect the human being behind the argument (and prevent becoming disrespectful or derogative myself) when talking to people who think very differently from me politically? 

The ability to deal with conflicts in confrontational times requires empathy, prespective-taking, emotion regulation and creative problem-solving. The central aim of the workshop is therefore to strengthen these skills. Cultural knowledge and personal resources for dealing with conflicts are reflected upon and applied to individual cases and experiences. The approaches of non-violent communication (NVC) according to Rosenberg are applied to everyday communication challenges. Theoretical input, exercises, self-reflection and exhange between the particiapants alternate in the interactive workshop.
