Dialogue Facilitation Training

Do you want to be a part of building a culture of communication?

Strong communication skills are important to support the academic and community-based work we do. That is why we are offering a training to teach participants how to facilitate and cultivate productive conversations.

You are cordially invited to a Dialogue Facilitation Training by Jonathan Garlick, DDS, PhD on Wednesday, January 22, 2020, 2:00-5:00PM at Tufts CTSI, 35 Kneeland St. 8th Floor Large Conference Room, Boston.

This interactive event will provide a general level of training to teach you the skills needed to facilitate a structured dialogue and improve communication.

The objectives of this training are to:

  • Promote open and inclusive dialogue
  • Teach participants to recognize how they can be a part of better conversations about potentially divisive issues
  • Encourage active listening and participation in dialogue.

*Complimentary refreshments will be provided.

Once you are trained, we have two upcoming opportunities for you to use your new facilitation skills:

  • Dialogue on Diabetes Research, February 5, 6:00-8:00PM at Roxbury Community College
    Pre-dialogue prep for facilitators: January 29, 4:00-5:00PM at 35 Kneeland St., 8th Floor Large Conference Room, Boston
