Speaker:  The workshop will be led by Martin Carcasson, Ph.D ., professor of Communication Studies at Colorado State University, the founder and director of the CSU Center for Public Deliberation (CPD) (, and the current chair of the National Coalition for Dialogue and Deliberation Board of Directors (

Description: This workshop will focus on building local capacity to engage difficult issues more collaboratively and productively through the use of deliberative engagement processes. Deliberative engagement involves interactive, often facilitated, small group discussions using materials and processes that spark collaborative learning rather than merely the collection of individual opinions.

An opening session will examine the concept of “wicked problems” as a framework to better understand difficult issues where there may be a clash of values, for example.  We’ll then review recent research on social psychology to help explain why traditional engagement processes are often counterproductive to supporting the high-quality communication democracy requires. The workshop will then review the key components to deliberative engagement and explore and engage in hands-on practice with a variety of tools and techniques drawn from several dialogue and deliberation traditions.
