Guest: Emily deSchweinitz Taylor, conflict mediator, Author of Raising Mediators You’re going to be with a lot of family and friends at holiday gatherings in the next couple of weeks. And maybe you’re dreading what will happen when your uncle brings up that politician you disagree with, or your mother-in-law starts giving you parenting advice.

What if there were a way to have that disagreement without ending in hurt feelings or broken dishes? (Originally aired 12/13/18).
