Our field is riven with conflicts. If you want to train dogs, talk with dog trainers or just hang around online, you must learn how to negotiate contentious subjects. Social media management skills are just as important for many of us to learn as how to train dogs, yet there's been a dearth of good resources until now. This webinar was super helpful. In his calm manner, Michal nailed the important concepts of communicating online. There was loads of info on what it is, how it works, how it differs from "IRL" and in what specific ways we can manage it better - including opting out entirely. Loved it, watched it over several hours (stopping to pause and think) and plan to watch again soon. Thank you, Michal and Grisha.Read Less
The Internet brings us together despite physical distance, national borders, and sanitary limitations. I love that dog trainers can share training techniques with each other and help dogs across the globe. Unfortunately, it's also a space that's dangerous to mental health, where people are easily aggravated and prone to treat each other without much empathy.
We’ve all been there, either taking sides and actively trying to prove others wrong in an online “discussion” or merely witnessing with discomfort how the tensions unravel.
It doesn’t help the dogs if, for example, our “well-reasoned” arguments to treat dogs with more kindness actually make people more defensive and blind us to the humanity of the person online with whom we’re sparring.
Sociologists study what we have in common, the likely human responses and ways of learning. We aren’t “bad people” when we fall into these traps, but we can redirect our natural urges and find better ways to connect. That’s why I’ve asked my friend Michal Pregowski, a professor and super-brilliant sociologist from Poland, to inspire and teach us how to navigate sensitive conversations online.
What makes computer-mediated communication (CMC) so peculiar? How can we be open to finding solutions for the greater good and communicate online with empathy? Join Michal as he answers these questions and offers solutions to nurture safer online communities.
