Index Card Assignment due today: select three communication topics from within the course that might be an interesting way of looking at the community.
- And sometimes the goal is extreme
- achieving a level of intimacy or level of that that is hard for any one person to achieve on their own.
- we like to think of ourselves as self-contained units that can do it all
- its hard to give up control to someone else, even when we absolutely have to in order to reach a goal.
- Dialog Strategies for dealing with the difficult cases:
- ''#15: Minimize the level of mistrust before pursuing practical objectives.
- It is difficult to be honest and accept the disclosures of people we distrust
- How do you reach understanding if you can't hear what the other person is saying and won't tell them what you really think?
- Five stages that create sustained dialogue
- Select about a dozen participants representing the views of the main factions in the conflict.
- In the first few meetings, ventilate problems and grievances, analyze the relationship, and identify one problem that needs to be worked on.
- Agree on a definition of the problem, lay out alternative solutions, weigh the options, and set a general direction for resolving it.
- Reflect on the obstacles that stand in the way of the solution, steps that will overcome the obstacles, who will take those steps, and how they can be arranged as a plan of action.
- Finally, if conditions permit, discuss how the plan of action can be advanced to those that have the capacity to act.
- There is no absolute order to these steps.
- It is common to loop back through stage three repeatedly
- Successful dialogue can take a long time and many meetings
- There are no absolute right answers to such questions as
- How many sessions will there be?
- How often will they be held?
- What kinds of people should participate?
- Should they be helped by professional facilitators or not?
- What kind of setting should the meetings be held in?
- What expectations participants should have.
- The real questions are:
- How difficult is the problem?
- How important is it that the problem be resolved?
- How much effort will it take to establish trust?
- For problem cases, six months of frequent meetings is a good starting estimate.
- Where trust isn't a problem, two or three sessions may do.
