Promotion of Civility in Politics with Marcia Albert

Why Can’t We Disagree with Civility When we Discuss Politics with Others?
Presented by: Marcia London Albert, Ph.D.
Sponsored by Temple Isaiah Women

Registration is limited to 25 participants.

As we begin a new secular year and a new administration, a significant number of us are seeking new communication strategies that may insure meaningful dialogue regarding our political beliefs with family members, friends, and acquaintances.  Isaiah Women (IW) invites you to a workshop with Marcia London Albert where we can learn more about our political differences.  This presentation will explore the psychological dimensions of partisan polarization and its impact on voters.  We will also examine the reasons people voted Democrat or Republican in the last two elections.  Participants will have opportunities to practice how to engage in conversations that lead to greater understanding despite disagreements about the topic.  Finally, we will conclude our workshop with a Jewish commitment to hope for a better future for all Americans.

About Marcia Albert:
After working in higher education for over twenty-five years, Marcia realized how much students at all levels (community college through medical school) had taught her about dealing with life’s challenges.  In spite of a very difficult and challenging 2020, she is hopeful Americans can begin to expect the best of one another.  Much of Marcia's work encourages individuals to take an honest look at themselves to figure out their feelings of resentment and distrust toward others.  This sort of self-examination takes work and she hopes our workshop will be a first step toward understanding those with whom we disagree.  Marcia received her Ph.D. in the Field of Education from Claremont Graduate School (now Claremont Graduate University) and has published in the fields of cross-cultural education, race relations, and health care issues.
