Deliberative Conversation on Alcohol and Drug Use
What should we do when alcohol and drug use become a problem to society? It’s never been more important to talk to each other about tough problems. Practice listening with empathy and respect, considering other perspectives, weighing the trade-offs of courses of action in a National Issues Forum. The kinds of problems that deliberation is meant to address are not things for which we have the one perfect answer. This is an opportunity for the kinds of conversations we don’t usually have. This forum will use the guide “Over the Edge: What Should We Do When Alcohol & Drug Use Become a Problem to Society?” from the National Issues Forums.
- considering other perspectives
- weighing the trade-offs
