Institute for Civic Discourse and Democracy

Workshops for Facilitators

The influence of facilitation on the conduct and outcome of public forums is so significant that training, practice and assessment for facilitators is a priority of ICDD. 

The institute offers targeted workshops tailored to community groups developing public forums.  We also organize brief "workouts" to help facilitators review and practice specific skills and models of public conversation.
