A free MMA webinar on Jan. 11 will explore the art of communication in challenging times, including how to have productive dialogue with a clear head and how to overcome feelings related to volatility.

In today’s world, where tensions run high and conflicts seem inevitable, finding common ground through dialogue can feel like a daunting challenge — particularly for those who have felt traumatized by news events or past conflicts. Is it even possible to engage in meaningful conversations when everything around us feels so volatile?

Sharon Select Board Chair Kiana Pierre-Louis, the assistant dean of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion at Northeastern University, will share practical tips for fostering constructive dialogue and provide insights into how a trauma response can affect communication.

The 75-minute webinar will begin at noon.
