Private Communication Workshops on Free Speech & Diversity
A conversation between people of different demographic groups can sometimes feel awkward. Some compare it to walking on eggshells.
The Intersecting Identity Play Communication Private Workshops allows a single adult or small group of up to three persons to feel comfortable expressing themselves and sharing their views in a private, safe environment. This is especially useful for those who are in a situation at work or another organization where there is difficulty in communication between adults of diverse demographic backgrounds.
You will be able to share your story and receive tips and advice to be able to communicate in a way that might lead to different outcomes.
PRePP can allow people from different backgrounds to have open conversations about any subject with respect and politeness for individual sensibilities without a feeling of being judged or censored.
Trigger Words & Micro-Aggressions are Personal
Everyone has a unique personal history. Certain words or phrases may bring up painful memories. That is completely understandable. While anyone can speak from their personal experience for their demographic, no one is a spokesperson for their demographic.
“As a Gay, Bipolar, Person of Color . . .“ This style of communication was born in American universities. It is very American with a focus on the individual. Europeans and Asians tend not to put as much focus on individual victimization.
It is understandable that listing oppressions can feel validating to some people. In fact, we encourage people to list their identities as part of Intersecting Identity Play.
Honest meaningful conversations can challenge our beliefs. In many cases, personal growth and development emerge from these free-flowing uncensored conversations.
