This practicum follows ALA 320/PSYCH 310/SOC 320/, "Training Processes in Intergroup Dialogue Facilitation" and requires applied work in facilitating intergroup dialogues. Students participate in weekly seminars and frequent instructor/coach consultations to:

  • Discuss and prepare work for weekly dialogue sessions
  • Strengthen facilitators’ own understanding of intergroup relations
  • Further develop the co-­facilitation relationship and experience
  • Discuss theory and practice of group observation, conflict intervention, intergroup communication, and community building
  • Continue facilitators’ own personal growth and development in the intergroup dialogue process

    Practicum focuses on helping students develop and improve their skills as dialogue facilitators. This will be done in the context of the belief that facilitation skills can be used throughout life to create positive social change. Effective facilitators are effective social change agents. Moreover, by debriefing their actual dialogue experiences, facilitators can deepen their learning about identity, discrimination, privilege, and social justice.
