Dr. Michelle Moyal joins the program to talk about having difficult conversations in difficult times!
LARA was mentioned on the program. LARA stands for Listen, Affirm, Respond, and Add Information. The overarching aim of this tool is to encourage communication across difference (whether of identities, perspectives, or experiences). As a communication tool, LARA can be useful in building connection and trust with others, creating space for the exploration of multiple – even conflicting – perspectives, and bringing emotions, assumptions, and social identities into the conversation. The goal of LARA is to help steer a conversation towards mutual understanding of each other’s identities, lived experiences, and positions.
