Anton Hart, PhDIn order to open up speech between ourselves and our colleagues and also our patients about the ways that we are different (particularly when such differences intersect with socially charged, historically laden forms of difference, that involve prejudice and “othering,” like race and sexual orientation), we must prepare ourselves for—and even seek—difficult, threatening, unsettling, awkward and shame-inducing conversations.

This workshop attempts to encourage participants to move toward such challenging conversations and to risk unscripted dialogue that involves intensive forms of curious and personally open listening and speaking about aspects of difference and otherness. Through a conceptual overview featuring a hermeneutic orientation to dialog, followed by structured, conversational execises, we will attempt to increase our tolerance for the challenges to our sense of knowing who our dialogic other is, and who we ourselves are, as we enter into conversation across the borders of human difference.
