Show Notes

Toodles to taboos, specifically the taboo that is having conversations with friends and family about politics. Often a touchy subject, and amongst those (heyy, the religion you’re in the mix too!), that lights a match to many a fire when it comes to conversations around the dinner table, politics has a reputation for sowing division. But what if it's just the way we’ve always approached these conversations? Could it be that we’ve been dipping into the wrong toolbox to operate these conversations productively? We explore this topic on this very special episode with Melissa Pennica, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Senior Therapist, and Clinical Supervisor, who helps us (and now you) understand how to navigate political conversations with everyone and their crazy uncle. A must listen to before you sled into the holiday or zoom there in style, this episode will give you the tools you need to create unity and renew connection on a topic that should no longer be taboo.
