Program Title: WINGS #07-17 Words Without War
Description: We use our words as weapons, says longtime therapist and author Sharon Ellison, "most of us communicate from a place where we feel defensive and like victims most of the time." Communicating without attacking or defending is harder than you might think, but sometimes a single neutral, gentle, curious question can shift years of negative interactions. A lot of them could change the world.

Host(s): Sue Supriano
Featured Speakers/Guests: Sharon Ellison, author of the book Taking the War Out of Our Words: The Art of Powerful Non-Defensive Communication.

Credits: Based on a program in Sue Supriano's series Steppin' Out of Babylon, with additional audio from the author's website. WINGS series producer, Frieda Werden

Comments: Adaptation of a very popular WINGS archival program.
