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.
