Linda Tropp was quoted in an article in Yes magazine entitled Only Bridging Can Heal a World of Breaking. She comments about how to have a discussion with someone you disagree with and perhaps change that person’s mind. She says one key is to talk to people who have views that are different from your own. “The more contact we have, the less anxious we feel about being with people who are different from us, and the more able we are to empathize with them in terms of what they are going through,” Tropp says.
