Compassion Through Positive Communication
Maggie Jane Pitts, Assistant Professor and Director of Graduate Studies,
Department of Communication
The Positive Communication movement centralizes the role of everyday talk in facilitating health and wellbeing across the lifespan. We engage compassion for self and other through acts of positive communication. Dr. Pitts introduces the principles of positive communication that allow us to elevate and enhance our daily lived experiences, focusing specifically on savoring communication. Communication savoring brings awareness to the meanings and relationships embedded in talk allowing individuals to increase their presence in everyday encounters. Communication savoring also opens space for compassionate engagement, especially in difficult communication exchanges. View the event
