Good relationships start with listening.

Listening circles emphasize storytelling for cultivating empathy. They can help your community – workplace, school, organization, neighborhood, university or family – gain a shared sense of understanding and foster emotional connection.

In this webinar, recorded on October 29, 2020, participants heard from skilled facilitators about how listening circles are being used in a variety of settings to address topics ranging from systemic racism and sexual violence, to the impacts of the pandemic and traumatic events.

Panelists included IIRP Lecturer Elizabeth Smull, M.R.P.Y.C., Trisha N. Tinsley, owner of Citizen Coach, and Kevin Jones, M.S., owner of Pathways 2 Restorative Leadership.
